TS1500 - Portugal?

Post by kpalser » Sun Oct 15, 2017 12:44 pm

Hi,

I've read that the TS1500 was built at a Timex factory in Portugal.

The TS1000 wiki page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timex_Sin ... clair_1500 also says it was sold there. Is this true?

Did Timex go to the trouble of making PAL versions of the TS1500 with a Portuguese user manual? Or was this just lots of unsold stock being distributed to the locals/workers?

Thanks,
Kevin

As a side point, I contacted John Grant of NineTiles to ask if they made the changes to the ROM code and received any loyalties. He doesn't have any recollection of being involved with the Timex computers and there was no licensing agreement. Paid by hour.
