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.

WOW! There are almost 400 comments here! I don't think that I have ever seen that many.

I wonder why the press releases refer to the price as a "street price" rather than something like "retail price".

I think that means that TI doesn't KNOW how much they'll be selling them for, but they THINK that the average price will be about what they stated in the article...maybe we'll get lucky and it will actually be less? lol...yeah right...

This line is giving me probs under mirage, although great on its own:
:sub(Str1, inString(Str1, sub(Str3,(D-1)6-5,6))+6,(LIST) ASNW(7C-7+(D-1))-6(STORE)Str2
why wont mirage run this line, along with a few lines that look the same? Since it runs great on its own, it cant be my program. disregard the spaces in the line, I had to put them in for display reasons on this site.

by the way...The USB implemented on the new calculators is USB On-The-Go or USB OTG. For an overview check out the URL in this post.

Never thought that TI would put something as recent/advanced as that into their calcs....maybe they COULD act as USB hosts then....

Click the "Hardware" link at the top of the page...there should be instructions for overclocking most of the TI calc models.

I hadn't long in for some time. I saw the TI-84 plus in a WalMart yesterday. $109.95 same price as the TI-86 was going for at WalMart. The TI-84 Silver was out of stock and was going for the same price as the TI-83 SE Silver.

I have a TI-83 (with the redesigned case which sucks when it comes to changing the batteries) and a TI-83 SE Silver. I haven't gotten plain TI-83 Plus. Nor a TI-200. My TI-92 Plus is a TI-92 with Plus module. I had bought a second TI-92 off e-bay. I use mostly the TI-89 though to solve some symbolic problems. Which I end up doing long hand anyway.

I guess my next Calc will be the TI-89 Titanium.

The principle calculator I use every day though is my TI-86. (My two TI-85's are not used as much any more. Both were replaced by ONE TI-86.)
