All featues offer a wide spectrum of functions. They are limited only by the skill, knowledge and imagination of the user.

[To top/bottom of page] Database Functions

Both short term storage (on the left of Pocket Consultant) and long term storage (on lower right) are available.

Careful use of the short term database on the left lets you stack the entries. hence the newest entry may afterwards be deleted first.

Numeric and algebraic calculations can be stored in the databases as well as text of arbitrary length.


There is NO Quick Unerase available for the short term database! Before deleting items in the short term database transfere them to the long term database on the right side of your Pocket Consultant.

[To top/bottom of page] Numeric and Algebraic Calculations

With your Pocket Consultant you can make arbitrary numeric and algebraic calculations. This is supported by: Spread sheet applications are handled uniquely by transfering numeric values to the text processing area or the long term database area.


Since the calculator has very low power consumption compared to PC's of other brands, neither mains nor batteries harmful to the environment are needed. As long as there is light enough to read the results on the screen, there is enough power to produce results.

Compare the following features with those of PC's of other manufacturers:

[To top/bottom of page] Calendar and Time Functions

Pocket Consultant features a powerful time processor (TP) with: This device is battery powered to give you correct answers also in the dark (may be also in Dark Castle).

To minimize confusion on the display, only one result is shown at once. Normally this is the time of day. Press the cap to switch to other modes.

All results from stopwatch, clock and calendar can be easily transfered to the databases, the text processing area or the calulator. Since there are two displays, you will not screw up your mind.

Database, text, timer and calculation functions also may be used in parallel, since Pocket Consultant uses parallel processing known only from powerful mainframes.


Don't drop the batteries of the TP (time processor) into the sewer! This may damage your environment!
