I guess "Phoenix" was the internal code name, much like various software who gets a codename before being officially named.

It is, and the name is still being used within the latest OS's ;)

Maybe this was what the "New Zealand" Prototype that Datamath found was based off of...  Datamath had found a picture of a protoype Nspire from an article in New Zealand.  No one was sure if it was released.  This looks very much like the picture. Interesting
You just lost the game.

Fat characters like this?!?

Yeah, full-width alphanumeric. It's convenient in chinese because these characters have the same width as the chinese and japanese characters. (Normal characters such as those ones in this sentence are called half-width.)

(Also I can type like this because I installed a japanese input method and it lets me write like this.)

Hmm, I like that dpad style. I always preferred separated arrows, although some say they're bad for street fighter.
