I think its going to be pretty programmable, because why would someone using it for math want all those other features, they'll say its not worth the money.  I'm betting this is programmer oriented.

Moved to news section.

This is freaking epic. Now TI is gonna take a good shot there :P

Btw the FX-9860G is kinda cool too. More limited than z80 for BASIC but it has more RAM and you can do pretty nice flash apps on it.

The CFX 9850G series were cool too, because they also had color display but they looked crappier and the calc was more limited.

Btw nice to see you around Kucalc :D

I wonder how long it will take BrandonW to hack TI's response calculator into having Wi-fi connectivity  ::)

I wonder if Casio was scared of the OTcalc project :P

Maybe they saw OTcalc planning and were a bit worried that we might do them more competition or something and decided to go ahead with something really powerful to also outdo TI :P

I hope this doesn't eat batteries like crazy, though...

It would probably take longer for TI to actually release the calculator. :(

In the specs, it says it gets about 140 hours on batteries, I believe.

It looks cool- hopefully it supports assembly (or C) right out of the box, and not just Casio-Basic or whatever language Casio calcs use. (I know a bit about HP calcs but nothing about Casio).

I did think it was some new cell phone (or some cell phone hacking project by an Omni member) when I first saw it.



The userbars in my sig are links embedded links.

And in addition to calculator (and Python!) stuff, I mod Civilization 4 (frequently with Python).

Wow 140 hours, I wonder if that's at the full processing power, cuz if it's the case, it's really epic o.o.

Casio's mistake will be to make this MUCH MORE expensive than a Nsprie.  If it runs around 160 dollars and has some nice programming, I'm pretty sure the Nspire will be toast

wired says the calculator runs for $130 so no problems there (:

edit: "With Casio, academic achievement never looked so good. The new fx-CG10/PRIZM is approved for use on the ACT, PSAT, SAT and AP Exams."
if it's approved on all those exams, i doubt the math functions are as helpful as a nSpire CAS or TI 89, though.

I think the nSpire just got raped
