NeoCortex42: Esc7: likefunbutnot: HotWingConspiracy: Is there even a market for this anymore? Most people in to portable gaming are satisfied with playing a puzzle game for 15 minutes at a time.

People still buy graphing calculators, so yeah, somewhere there's probably someone fantasizing about having a small Android tablet with a D-pad on it.

The only reason people buy graphing calculators is because the testing protocols only allow for a whitelist of calculating devices. Consequently Texas Instruments exploits this by selling hardware with probably a 1000% markup. It is highway robbery, but when you're student's education is on the line, 150$ is just under the threshold of telling them to FOAD.

/hates overcosted graphing calculators
//if we cared, we could probably get one in every single enrolled child's hands for 20$ a pop.

I love my TI-89 since I got it early in college. Definitely one of the most useful devices I've ever owned. However, I still can't believe how the price has hardly changed on them in over a decade.


Obligatory:

/I made it through college calculus using a TI-82 I picked up off of Half.com for about $30
//even then, I thought the retail prices on TI's calculators were sheer ludicrousness

It's also a time machine.
