RE: NumWorks open source calculator
I'd like to observe that, while the price is not that small. It is the first iteration of the device for the manufacturer
(it is not that the first calculator from hp, ti, casio, sharp was as good as the ones that are sold today).

Plus one should keep in mind that those devices should keep alive the battery, to implement large libraries one need resources and those have a price. Aside from being overkill in a device that does not have much "space" (ram/rom). numpy /simpy are good maybe for a tablet or something bigger. it is unlikely one goes on using them on a calculator with limited keyboard (limited for letters, not for numbers).

And even on a tablet, I am skeptical (unless it is very big, like 10'). Likely one needs a real keyboard to make use of those libraries.

I would be pretty happy (due to the possible competition) if the device would be good enough on the numerical side to match, say, an hp50g or a ti 89, not even a prime /nspire.

Wikis are great, Contribute :)
