TI Announces TI-84 Plus, SE; TI-89 Titanium
Posted by Michael on 7 January 2004, 22:25 GMT

TI-84 Plus Silver EditionTI has announced two new calculators for release in the spring: the TI-84 Plus and TI-84 Plus Silver Edition. Both are fully compatible with the TI-83 Plus and TI-83 Plus Silver Edition. Both have new physical styles, an integrated USB port for computer connectivity, an internal clock, and an available kickstand.

The TI-84 Plus features 480 KB of flash memory, 24 KB of user RAM, and a 15 MHz clock speed, while the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition has 1.5 MB of flash memory, available interchangeable faceplates, and is also 15 MHz. If you haven't already guessed, the Silver Edition, like its 83+ counterpart, is silver in color.


TI-89 TitaniumFor the summer of 2004, the high-end calculator line gets a metallic lift with the TI-89 Titanium. In addition to tripling the memory to 2.7 MB of flash, it also features a built-in USB port for computer connectivity as well as the kickstand slidecase (I'm not sure if this is included or an add-on, I think it's purchased separately). All three calculators feature high-contrast LCDs and are compatible with TI's projection devices (like ViewScreen).

Update: According to this press release, the 84+ will retail at $109.99 and the 84+ SE at $129.99. It seems that these are intended 83+/83+ SE replacements. The TI-89 Titanium press release quotes a street price of $149.99.

Ok, clock, that is one difference i guess. USB...Woop-de-doo, USB is so much better than the serial port that comes with the silver 83. Really, I prefer the serial -- you allways are running out of free USB ports on your computer, but to you have anything else using the serial??

What he means by USB is that there is a USB port IN THE CALC in addition to the standard 3/32inch port. Not just compatibility with TIConnect's USB Silver link cable...

To your last question, I say no... since only one of my computer actually HAS a USB port.

And, anyways, I have a USB hub and a PS/2 to USB converter, giving me... 7 open USB ports. More than enough.

Let's see...

Serial mouse, serial modem, serial PDA interfade, serial interface with laptops.

I can only map them to Com1-Com4

This means that I can't have anything else using serial, even if i had more expansions ports.

The expantions ports are all used up:

3x ISA serial ports
1x ISA serial/parallel port
1x ISA 512kb video card
1x ISA sound card (connection to duel speed CDROM drive)
1x ISA SCSI controller card.

Doesn't USB also allow multiple devices on the same cable? Neither RS-232 nor the TI-serial port allow that.

TI-84 Plus and SE have a BUILT-IN USB!! If that works directly like a TI-Graph link, then i won't need the graph link. TI-89 TITANIUM Has 2.7 MB!! of Flash Memory!!! That's more than any other calculators. But TI-84 SE comes with 30 apps and can store 94 apps. Man, i've gotta get 84 se and 89 T

To me it seems like the TI-89TI is just a Voyage 200 (with an USB port) in a new, 89-ish case.

Nope...same processor, just more memory, and a bigger screen (however the 89T doesn't have this large screen)

The 89 HW2's have 12MHz as well...you are right in that the V200 is faster than the HX1 89's...they had only 10MHz...

Now all TI needs to do is create a 'Voyage 200 Titanium,' with a big scary black border and slanted keys ;)
