S > SHARP  > PC-2500   


The Sharp PC 2500 has the same characteristics as the Sharp PC 1350 pocket computer. Sharp removed the small keyboard of the 1350 and added a better keyboard. The PC 2500 has also a small built in color printer-plotter (4 colors, 15 character sizes, 11,4 cm wide, 4 c/s maximum speed).

The 3 KB main RAM memery could be expanded to 11 KB or 19 KB thanks to credit-card-size memory cards. The ROM contains a pretty good BASIC, a small telephone index and a small spreadsheet (10 rows x 7 columns, which can be extended to 42 rows x 20 columns with the 16 KB RAM expander).

This computer had no market success.

We need more info about this computer ! If you designed, used, or have more info about this system, please send us pictures or anything you might find useful.
Please consider donating your old computer / videogame system to or one of our partners from anywhere in the world (Europe, America, Asia, etc.).


Hallo fileschi,

Some were asking (some days ago :-) ) for a manual. Now I got one for some time. So you can ask me, if you have a question.

If anyone has a manual for use of the PC-2500, please email me, I keep getting an error code and have no manual. Thanks so much
