What if TI had made a color TI-89 Titanium CE? [68k][TI-84 Plus CE]

I made this on March 27th 2013 as unused April fools joke but I don't remember sharing it to anyone. The following is an unfinished mockup of what a color TI-89 Titanium OS could have looked like:



As a jab at the small graphing view on the TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition released the month I made this, I made the "TI-89 C Titanium" graph view even smaller (ironically, the same resolution as the Voyage 200). :P . If I recall correctly, in the prank the calc was to be a Z80 with the same specs as the TI-84+CSE, but with more user RAM, or at the very best, a 68K with the same or similar specs as the TI-89T.

A 68k calc would be pretty interesting to put a color screen on, anyway. It's one of the only CPU TI used for graph calcs there's no color screen model for.

What was cool about 68K calcs is that BASIC pictures could be any size, so you could use them as sprites. The only issue is that they were pretty slow. With a better processor and a color screen, such feature would have been nice.

I had a photoshop mockup of a "TI-89 Titanium C" or something :P
It's probably on my old laptop...

Do you mean the one above? I showed it to someone in the past but I forgot if it was you. If it's a different one, then it would be cool to see :)

Yeah, it'd have been pretty cool if there were a "middle" color CAS model between the TI-84 Plus CE/CE-T/83 Premium CE and the awesome CX CAS. At least it would have meant 68k models wouldn't die...  But with the non-support of the 89 T in TI-Connect CE, Texas decided the death of these models !

The nspire line pretty much replaces the 68k line. The much faster CPU is a great upgrade for the CAS.

It's a great upgrade for TI-Basic and built-in ASM/C support as well!  Oh wait...

Hmm no, I meant one I made myself. but it wasn't just the screen it was the whole calculator :P
