Might also be the Pocket Computer PC-3 (26-3590). This was also 1983. The
revamped 26-3589 with increased memory came out in 1984, and was simply badged
Tandy, so that appears to be the year the shift occurred. These were both
rebadged Sharp PC-125x series pocket computers, see

for pictures and history.
