Here's a private photo of the HP-Prime taken at the NTCM we were sent today:

Sorry about the blur.

Nice - any information on the dimensions? I was wondering how thick/thin this thing is.

I believe Tim mentioned it was approximately 10mm thick (really thin if true!). From extrapolation the width and height appear to be similar to the HP 39gII (9.4cm x 18.7cm).

From the looks of it, this is an Algebraic OS or, is there an RPL setting somewhere?


#15

Logic is Algebraic or RPL You don't think they would waste a double width Enter key on an algebraic-only calc :)

Programming is similar to the HP39gII (not RPL)


#16

As I understand, there's an RPN mode, but here's what we don't know:

  • We don't know how deep the stack is
  • We don't know how integrated the stack will be with everything else - for instance, if I want to run a program, will I have to run the program as Progname(Arg1,Arg2,Arg3), or do I put Arg1, Arg2, and Arg3 on the stack and run Progname like on an RPL machine?
  • We don't know how similar to RPL it is re: objects being on the stack (but, given that the 39gII does support objects in its "algebraic stack" (which does behave like an RPL machine in algebraic mode, IIRC), I'd guess that it is fairly similar in that regard, but I think programs will be their own different thing, and the CAS/numeric split will cause some behavior changes there, too, I think)
  • For that matter, we don't even know for sure if it's Entry RPN or behaves like Classical RPN as far as number entry goes (but I'd be highly surprised if it were Classical)

And do we know it hasn't SD storage card??

I can confirm that.

The key colors remind me of Howard Johnson's restaurants:
