I have asked this question before, but got no reply.Is there going to be an equation Library APP for the Prime, similar to the 48 49 and 50 calculators, in the next iteration of the Prime OS?
HP has been touting the Prime as the greatest thing since sliced bread for education; where are the other slices?
If this calculator is supposed to be aimed at math and science students/teachers of many kinds this type of app would seem to be most appropriate.
Of course Engineers do not always seem to think like"real" people do.
Dr. McCoy always said "Engineers like to change things".

I think it's safest to assume that what you buy is what you've got. There's no guarantee that there will be anything more released for the Prime, even an update. Those who know for sure are not in a position to talk about it. They can't be making promises they can't keep. Projects get canceled all the time. Everyone else would just be guessing. My guess would be: it depends on sales. Are they backordered? Are dealers running low on stock?

Quote: It's hard to justify the importance of an equation libary solely based on Prime's pedagogical intent. As you see, Prime's TI and Casio counterparts, the TINspire CX CAS and ClassPad II fxCP400, also don't have any equation libary.
My guess is that HP doesn't want to get the HP50g replaced as it did for the HP28C and any successor up to the HP49g+. Therefore, features such as the RPL, lowlevel programming, beeper and equation library only exist in the HP50g, not Prime. Edited: 30 Oct 2013, 9:48 a.m. ▼

sorry for my bad English this type of program (Equation Library) is not difficult to program, in the future I can programmed 100% HPPrime BASIC GUI+ more Equation Library in 100% USERRPL http://www.hpcalc.org/details.php?id=7282 I leave the project in the HP50 because the userrpn is too slow, but the basic of the hpprime is possible
