TI Designs New Calculator in Germany
Posted by Michael on 12 April 2006, 15:03 GMT

[TI-Nspire CAS]It appears that TI has a new calculator under development, however it only appears on the German version of TI's website. The TI-Nspire CAS (translation) is seemingly in a pre-release phase.

TI has a flash demo posted which shows some information about the calculator. It is a departure from all previous models, with a new GUI and what looks like a grayscale screen. There is no information yet on the hardware specifications, other than it has a USB port and two USB ports on a cradle (if I am translating German correctly). In any case, this new upcoming calculator is more exciting than watching Joey Gannon dancing in lederhosen.

Please keep in mind that the image to the right is one of TI's mockups which is drawn in Photoshop (or photo editor of their choice). It is not an actual image.

i have a fealing that they wouldnt waste all that money to make it, and then only release it in german.

Also, it sort of makes me wonder what michael was doing on the german ti website...

I'm pretty sure there will be an english version. Look at the screen shots again...they're in English. Google can't translate images/flash animations.

Does anyone else think that there could very well be a stilus involved here?

I think it might since they show the mouse cursor on the pictures, and I also noticed how they have buttons like the formal "X" at the top right corner.

Maybe the photoshopper forgot to move away his cursor while making the screenshots ? :D

It's optional on Mac OS X. If you use Grab, you can choose which cursor you want displayed (with full-screen and timed shots). If you use the Command-Shift-3 shortcut, they are not displayed.

According to my European Patent Office link (which no one bothers reading), yes.

Because it's nowhere near released yet? See the thread on the first page: someone asked TI-CARES and they said it's going to be released in fall.

That doesn't seem fair... (Although I can't figure out if it's unfair to Germany or unfair to other countries.)

I guess PR dude at TI Germany decided that announcing it now will get more people interested than shutting up, and just ordered the announcement without caring about what TI HQ in the USA thinks.

Please visit the link. It contains new screenshots and a model. Pure emailed this to Michael Vincent and received a reply that it was not "newsworthy". When I emailed this to Michael Vincent myself, I received no reply at all.

Another link is http://forum.ticalcs.net/ showthread.php?tid=172.

What do you all think of this?

He seems reliable enough, though I can see why it wasn't newsworthy at the time.

Yeah, sorry Coolv, but with no second source or anything it could be just someone's idea of a joke.

Aaah, do you mean the second link?

He said that he was requested to remove them. In addition, this happened one month ago.
