The newest Hewlett-Packard CRT terminal, Model 2644A, can perform on a stand-alone basis many operations normally requiring connection to a computer, according to HP. Two fully-integrated tape transports, using the newly-developed miniature version of the 3M data cartridge, provide 220,000 bytes of storage. For data entry, forms can be stored on one mini-cartridge and selectively retrieved in seconds. Program preparation, editing, tape copying, and tape-to-printer operations are all within the stand-alone abilities of the microprocessor-controlled 2644A, which will be marketed as the HP 2644A "Mini Data Station."
