It’s been a long, long while since we’ve put any thought, let alone published a post regarding a calculator. However, Texas Instruments this past week saw fit to spruce up their line of graphing calculators by introducing the TI-Nspire CX.
What makes it note worthy is the 320×240 16-bit color display. Students and teachers can use TI’s accompanying software to draft and create documents, which can be transferred to the handheld via mini-USB.
TI says that it’s permitted for use on the SAT, AP, PSAT/NSMQT, IB, and ACT college entrance exams, as well as many state standardized tests.
There is no word on price or availability, but we can’t imagine kids lining up, or pining for this device given that their smartphones can eclipse any grahical elements that can be created by the TI-Nspire CX graphic calculator.
