Here's some info when the CPC was launched in which countries, and which companies distributed the machines.
- AWA were the Australian Amstrad distributor from initial CPC launch till around mid 1988 when Amstrad set up office in Australia.
- ACU Jan/Feb 1985, page 16 - CPC down under
As far as concerning the Amstrad Computer User magazine "overseas" is everywhere outside England, like Eire (ACU Sep 1985 page 7) or Norway (ACU Jan 1987 page 13).
- ACU Jan/Feb 1985, page 16 - Launch in Singapore
- ACU Dec 1985, page 14 - User Group in Singapore (titled "Amstrad Users Singled Out")
Distributed by Indescomp, originally an independant spanish company, which was later aquired by Amstrad, and eventually renamed to Amstrad Espana.
In USA, the CPCs were originally distributed by Indescomp (Amstrad's spanish distributor who also launched the CPC6128 in USA). Further US distributors were Sears World Trade and Vidco, the latter one possibly more focusing on PCs or PCWs, not on CPCs.
- CPC Schneider International, 7-1985, pages 55, 56 (german) - Amstrad with CPC6128 on Consumer Electronics Show in Chicago
- ACU 1985-8, page 7 - CPC6128 launch in USA by Indescomp, also mentions a deal with Sears World Trade
- ACU 1987-3, page 5 - PC 1512 launch in USA
- New York Times, 26 Sep 1987 - switch from Sears Worldtrade to Vidco
The CPC6128 launch in USA appears to have been a flop, only two months later, the "US model" (the CPC6128) was sold in europe. And there's little info on how many (if any) CPC6128's were sold in USA. Never the less, about a year later, Sears World Trade gave it another try with the Amstrad PCW8256 InfoWorld - 7 Jul 1986, page 11.
