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.
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.
