The article on my site that you link to refers to the Hannover Trade Fair. Actually I found that the magazine itself has been scanned in its entirety. The article starts on page 24. Unfortunately it appears the editor only took pictures of one of the CBM-II computers, while the VIC-40 and Commodore 64 computers had been more interesting to see what they exactly looked like. http://archive.6502.org/publications/printout/printout_1982_05.pdf It could be compared to what happened at CES in Las Vegas already in January 1982, three months earlier when the VIC-40 was renamed Commodore 64, and the P128 (P500) also somehow was on the table. But then again as pointed out, Commodore USA and Commodore Germany were two separate teams, as well as Commodore Japan apparently was working on their own as well. http://www.mos6502.com/friday-commodore/30-years-of-commodore-64/ Best regards Anders Carlsson Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2016-08-03 23:00:02
