TI-Nspire dismantled - ARM 9 @ 150 MHz!



#2

Hi calculator collectors,

I mentioned already that the TI-Nspire is available in Europe. Mine arrived and I disassembled one of them immediately.
It is based on LSI LOGIC's ZEVIO architecture and features tons of memory for the Operating system, Files and User data.
Booting after power-up takes 30 seconds when you switch between the keyboards...

Get your own impression here:

(I was in a rush - the images are perfect but the text is not finished...)

Regards,
Joerg

I must have missed that. Where can they be purchased?

But I'm sure the question most potential users want answered is 'is it powerful enough for a decent port of DOOM?'

Wow! Faster than XP then ;-)

I like the screen size. But it really is a pig-ugly thing.
But at least trig and exponential functions are 'primary', unlike the 89
How are they keys? they look a bit rubbery.

Joerg,

I feel you are truly blessed since you can read the German manuals of the TI NSpire. I think we need the manual(s) for a machine like the TI Nspire since I don't think it's trivial to operate and more importantly program.

I am very glad that you are attending HHC2007 and will be giving a talk. I think it's very open minded to have someone of your caliber and commitment to calculators be present. Rest assured that you will be among friends.

I am very much interested in buying one or two (not to mention possibly one for my son) TI NSpire. TI has done a good job marketing their graphing calculators. I think the Nspire software will be nice to use too.

Perhaps you have seen these...

Not full manuals, but better than nothing.

Matt,

A million thanks for the links you posted!! I was able to download 6 PDF files (includes 2 reference guides) for the TI Nspire and its computer-associated software. This makes me a very happy camper. Now I can read the manuals and learn about what the machine can and can't do.
