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.

It says the 84 will have an i/o port and have about 3x the archive but the same amount of ram? Also about the same res(8x16 char). But I guess the 84 is not as exciting as it first look liked. It mainly seems to have "upgraded" features to the 83+se and tabbed on a usb port which of course is not bad at all.

A new calc is always exciting. And this is weird... I will have to get used to the fact that there is a TI-84 now. That fills the gap between the TI-82 series and the TI-85 series. They can't make another TI-83-ish model now, because they're starting to run out of names. They can't make a TI-85, obviously, because it already exists. They'll have to go to TI-84 Gold Edition or something, if they want to keep it up.

Wasn't the TI-88 a computer?

The TI-88 was a scientific calculator that did not make it out of prototyping. BTW, I tried to type this on a Win98 Pentium 1, and whenever I typed the first letter of a window, it would open the window. Why does this happen? I was typing in a text box, and the window was active.

That's happened to me sometimes....rebooting fixes it.

But that implies that they are part of a different series... probably the TI-85 series.

That would be good, actually, they need an upgrade to the TI-86s.

Don't you know that the TI-88 was an unreleased prototype that was a new version of the TI-59. It was a program-only calc.

I don't think these even deserve a new number, it should be the TI-83+ Titanium. Then the real next one would be the TI-83-2, cause they can't have it run into the 85.

Or even better, they could start a new numbering system, with the TI-A1, TI-B1, TI-C1, and TI-D1 being the sequals to the 83+, 86, 89, and 92+.

Or...TI-101...hehe that sounds like a class for learning how to use calculators (I actually have one of those classes at my college. You learn how to press the Y= and Graph keys! lol)

Sad. But, that's how it is, most people at my advanced math course didn't know how to turn off the Axes. And that was the first time I'd ever used the TI-82, and I found out how in two seconds. Window, Right. Scroll down to "Axes Off", and press Enter. Then press Graph.

I wonder if they'll have a ViewScreen version.

I think that they are all compatible with viewscreen. You don't need a special version.

For all the other ones you need a special version. Maybe that's where all this extra cost is coming from.

The V200, TI-92, and TI-92 Plus already have Viewscreen compatability, but I doubt 'normal' calcs would have them.
