Calculators in General
After TI in America announced the TI-84 Plus CE color calculator, TI France now announces the TI-83 Premium CE!


As you will notice in the link above, the calculator design is very similar to the TI-84 Plus CE. However, the keyboard layout is different, with some features from the TI-Collège Plus being available. In addition to that, the APPS key was moved elsewhere on the French model. Also, good news for people who worried that the calculator would be locked down: According to Critor and TI's application page, it looks like it will support applications as well as the Asm() command.

One important feature, however, for math users, is the availability of CAS-like features, such as exact mode. It is unknown if that feature is specific to the French model or available on the 84+CE too. In addition to that, the French model keeps the exam mode from its North-American counterpart, an indication that France school system is soon going to start using teacher mode like in US schools.

Also, a video of the TI-83PCE in action in a classroom is available on Youtube:
<iframe width="640" height="385" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/esWJ7xQtobQ?fs=1&start=" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

As good as the math features showcased in this video are, I would like to direct your attention to something in particular:  Go to 1:34 in the video, where the student enters an equation in the Y= editor then graph the equation, and notice how fast the screen appears to refresh. Although it doesn't look instant, it still seems much faster than the TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition from 2013, which would definitively confirm rumors that the TI-84+CE and TI-83PCE are definitively faster. If that is the case, then this should hopefully address the issues that students had when entering math problems on the home screen in MathPrint mode, Y= equations or when using the program editor. We will have to confirm when someone has the chance to test those parts of the calculator in person, though.

TI-Connect CE was also revealed, and it now features a program editor, a feature that was also available in TI-Connect 1.5 but removed in 1.6. The interface also changed and is now slightly reminiscent of the HP Prime Connectivity kit.

UPDATE (January 17th 2015): Critor has managed to get his hands on a prototype yesterday and has published a full review, with tests, on TI-Planet. It turns out that Texas Instruments has finally listened to the people who complained about the slow typing and screen refresh speed witnessed at school on the TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition. Instead of a 15 MHz Z80, the TI-84 Plus CE has an ez80 processor! If you check the video posted by critor, you can see that the calculator is between 1.7 and 3 times faster depending of the operation.

<iframe width="640" height="385" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/FRnx-AMjQ7s?fs=1&start=" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Also, something new on this calculator is that language localization apps no longer appear in the APPS menu. Now you change the language in the MODE screen. Also, when navigating the MEM manager, if you move the cursor on a Flash APP, the version and copyright of that APP will appear in the status bar at the top of the screen.

Anyone on MacOS? If it's useful, I started a Homebrew tap for calc software cause it severely lacks calc software. If you don't know what this is, it's some sort of package manager for MacOS, just go on https://brew.sh/ and install it if you want. Then type these commands into Terminal.app:
