Nspire clickpad prototypes available on Ebay
« on: August 21, 2013, 11:31:48 pm »
While browsing Ebay, I came across an Nspire clickpad prototype. I contacted the seller to find out more, and it turns out that just the keypads are prototypes (as far as I know for now).  5 of the remaining clickpads are dark blue prototypes, and 2 are standard keypads. I asked the seller to send me one with a dark blue keypad, so if you want one, you can probably just ask.

The link is http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=181182219416&ssPageName=ADME:X:AAQ:US:1123&autorefresh=true

The funny thing is, I seem to recall having seen this keypad style before, but I can't seem to find it again. I think I may have been thinking of the Nspire+ keypad though :/

Anyway, Nspire prototypes ftw (coming from the guy with 3 so far :P)

Some of us have bad memories about past prototypes appearing on Ebay, because sellers used stock photos then tried to pass the prototype as a commercial product, scamming the buyer who was looking for an upgradeable model. However, nice find anyway. :)

Nice find, fortytwo. :D

Did you ask for the OS version or for the serial number?
We could deduce from that if it's just the keypad which is interesting or the full thing. ;)

I told the seller how to distinguish between prototype and normal serials, but I didn't get any specifics, only that the serials are normal. And DJ_O, that's the least of my concerns at the moment, I have upgraded prototypes before. I didn't ask for the OS version.

Interesting find there. I wonder how the prototype keypads came to be married with this production model calculators?
