Sharp LT numbering

To assist you in finding Sharp's logic, if any, I have a PC-1421
(handheld) which
dates from 1984. I also have a PC-5000 (not NIB like Sellam's, but
with more
goodies :), which is apparently a year older (but somewhat larger;
maybe they
went by size? :)

 I acquired a little while back a Sharp PC-3000. I am very enamored of
it and
it's possibilities. Similar to the HP95 and will use the same memory
only with a more-manageable KB.
 In researching it I found it came out in 91/92 and was a follow-up to
the Atari
Portfolio. The UK company (DIP) that designed the Portfolio and this
up model, offered it to Atari, which had it's own problems at that
time, who
declined it and then Sharp snapped it up.

 Sellam gave info on a Sharp PC-5000 he was selling and Joe R. on a
PC-7000. These model #'s make no sense at all as I believe both of
came out before the 3K. Anyone with any insight ? Or is it just that
makers use no logical system for model #'s
