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.

Awesome! And it's not fake news either! *caugh*V400*cough* Too bad I already spent my b-day money on a CLIE NX80V. The 84 is compatable with the 83+, right? Is the new TI-89Ti faster than the TI-89?

Too bad for you. My birthday is in a couple weeks so I'll just get cash to buy an 84 in spring.

Yes the 84 is compatable and no the new 89 is the same speed.

Also looks like ticalc.org is going to have to update yet again with new directories and options in the user profile.

Well 92+ programs are compatable with the V200, but they still made a new directory.

I believe that was mainly because of the name...it was completely different thus a user who didn't know much about calcs could actually find their calcs directory. See my coment above for more info on new directories.

Yes they should. Because the 84+ will be faster, grayscale *might* be possible. If so, a new folder will need to be made, because the 83+ will not be able to handle.

It's equal in performance to the silver edition TI83+

The only difference I've noticed so far between the TI83+ SE and TI84+SE is the case and the name.

Just wondering, will these new calcs also have "normal" link ports? If they don't, TI will lose compatibility /connectivity with all previous calcs. If they do, there will be two link ports, which means they cannot be compatible (at the assembly level) with the previous calcs....

Oops, the info is on TI's site, just not where I looked for it.
The 84 will have both a "normal" and USB port. As for compatability, maybe the USB port is accessed through a port that's unused on the 83+?

Good point... the TI-83+ folders (especially BASIC ones) are full enough as it is.

There's already been a topic about a TI 83+ Gold Edition / TI 84, and what features we would like, on the DS message board months ago. During that discussion, many posts ended with something similar to "too bad TI will never make an 84".

WMA stinks. AAC rules (and so does the iTunes Music Store). You can't even download music in WMA format. I have seen maybe five WMA audio files in my life.

Make for damn sure the battery can be replaced on the new IPod. Read up on the class action lawsuit in pending about the first and second release IPod.

ipodsdirtysecret.mov is a lie. The battery can be replaced for $39. The exact same model number and everything. Of course, it voids warranty, but if your battery dies before your warranty does, you have other problems.

No actually it wasn't a lie. Apple just added that battery replacement thing recently. I even saw a complete news show article thing about that recently.
