198x Philips/Magnavox VW2240 Serial # xxx 198x Philips/Magnavox VW2240 typewriter, Serial # xxx Dimitris Nikou's 198x Philips/Magnavox VW2240 typewriter. 2022-05-10 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Dimitris Nikou: 198x Philips/Magnavox VW2240 Serial # xxx First Philips typewriter I came across on Facebook Marketplace, thought it would be a good idea to add it here as a sighting - since there is no other Philips typewriter on the TWDB. I had to file it under the Philips/Magnavox category, but this is a Philips electronic typewriter, not a model of the Magnavox series. The machine looks really good, has a QWERTZ German keyboard layout and a small functions display screen. Very interesting to see that Philips gave it a try with typewriters back then.

Writer and blogger from Athens, Greece. I own a small collection of typewriters, dated from 1913 (my oldest one, a Remington Standard 10) up to the late 70's. Most of my machines are functionable and I try to repair any with problems that keeps it from typing. For me, it is important for a typewriter not just to sit on a shelve for display, but also to be able to type when I want to. On the links below you will find my blogs and social media profiles. Feel free to follow me and get in touch if you want. I am always happy to communicate :)
