TI-Nspire CX - The Next Generation
« on: February 19, 2011, 03:43:50 pm »
Over the past few weeks, rumors have come out about the next Nspire OS and possibly new hardware to counter the new Casio PRIZM.  Today, we have found out more about the next release:  the TI-Nspire CX Graphing Calculator! :)

TI-Bank reports the new Nspire CX Series.  According to a US website "Sameeroo", the next Nspire will have:

"The TI-Nspire handheld CX features a full-color, backlit screen, thin and sleek design includes TI-Nspire rechargeable battery. Use your own images Including photos. Explore real-world concepts Using The handheld's Notes, Graphs, Geometry, Data & Statistics and apps questions. TI-Nspire Teacher Sofware gold student TI-Nspire software IS required to add images Into TI-Nspire documents. Graph and rotate 3D functions. Change the color of wire gold surface your 3D graph. Clam shell."

This is truly ground breaking for the Nspire.  First off, it seems like we are finally getting 3D graphs, but who cares about the math stuff??? FULL COLOR Gameboy games, FULL COLOR NES Games, FULL COLOR Videos. The possibilities are truly NDLESS! :)

It also seems as if a new TI-Nspire navigator will bring WIFI to the Nspire: More Information!

Well, this sounds like it might solve a few of the problems we have with the Nspire. Decent screen (plus backlight), "sleek design" (I'll believe it when I see it), 3D graphing. Wait, and it's clamshell? Do want (pics :P)

Maybe they just mean it is packaged in a clamshell?

Also, I didn't want to do this in the actual article, but:

Ok, the one thing I must say. My friend and I got into an argument (no joke) that his classroom's nspires could connect tot he internet with a wireless pack. I did not beleive him. I now do and I also think that my school has a prototype. I must check.

I swear he was insisting that he could go on sites and stuff O_O

I'm a bit skeptical, but that just might be because I've just bought a new Nspire a few days ago, and am in denial. :o

Clamshell? Thin sleek design? WiFi? It sounds like they totally ripped off this: http://www.omnimaga.org/index.php?PHPSESSID=5b6bf375350b7e6c85243e20f6cebcba&topic=6318.msg119800#msg119800. I should go sue them. ;)

Seeing that it's only $150, it seems it'll just be a Prizm clone then. We will see just how good this new Nspire really is...

I'm surprised though that the Datamath Museum doesn't have something to say about this, as they usually get a hold on a prototype before TI announces something.

Do you think there will be any improvements in the programing problems?
