Case:

Gloss plastic four-colour process printed cover mimicking a 500 note.  This is designed to be folded in half and has a 14-page integral phone book pad to the right hand side. The keys are membrane, so quite slow to use. There is a "CE" sticker on the outside.

Age: c1999

Comments: Novelty calculator that was used as a promotional give-away.  My example has a "Madge Web" sticker on the inside (they stopped trading in 2001).  

The box (or rather card wallet) measures 84mm x 88mm and is printed in blue and yellow with a recycle black and white sticker on the reverse.

It is labelled in three languages, English, German and French.
