Tandy WP-3 Word Processor

The Tandy WP-3 is a portable Word Processor from the lates 1980s, early 1990s, a successor to the Tandy WP-2 but with a British English dictionary. Based on the Z-80 compatible NEC 70008A-6 it had a 6 line LCD display and a very usable full-size keyboard. Powered by 6V main supply and/or 4 x AA battries with backup from a CR2340 cell.

I owned this Tandt WP-3 briefly in 2020. Having bought it on eBay for £10 as a spare/repair I found that it worked fine once the contrast was adjusted properly, and sold it shortly afterwards to a buyer in South Korea.
