Aka/also known as: New ANPOS

Stands for New Alphanumeric Point of Sale, which was used to specifically refer to the IBM Model M9 Retail ANPOS Keyboard. The term was mainly used early in the M9's lifetime to contrast it with previous designs, but ultimately RANPOS became its most common and familiar shorthand name.
