New info about the Casio Classpad fx-CP400

Postby helder7 » Sun Apr 28, 2013 2:39 am

We were the first unofficial source in November 2012 announcing the new Classpad fx-CP400, the first touchscreen color graphing calculator.

Today we would like to share more details about this revolutionary calculator. A switzerland store revealed new information concerning the new Casio Classpad Fx-Cp400 (especially related with mathematical functions).
-5.5 MB Flash ROM memory, 24MB USB flash memory, programs and OS updates via Flash ROM
-Large color LCD display (320 x 528 pixels, 64k colors)
-Pen/finger touch screen operations
-Rotating screen by pressing a key (main application)
-Division of the screen into two windows to the application using a variety of editing functions such as drag & drop, copy & paste, etc. by a stylus operation
-Direct functional link between the applications on icon selection (one-touch)
-Virtual keyboard with mathematical functions, keyboard letters, special characters and catalog of all commands
-Natural mathematical notation
-Selection of given mathematical expressions to input the coefficients
-Icon menu
-Connection with PC via USB cable and calc-to-calc via 3-pin cable (included)

Functions
-Algebraic and numerical computing
-Fractions with "one-touch" conversion between fraction and decimal
-Access all mathematical functions by using the virtual keyboard for numeric and algebraic computations
-Calculations in degrees and radians
-Algebraic computing with commands such as solve, factor, expand, simplify, approx, combine, collect, etc.
-Calculations with complex numbers
-Conversion of sexagesimal into decimal and inversely
-Random number generator, permutation and combinatorics
-Vector Analysis: Calculating of dot and cross product
-Matrix: Creating matrices in mathematical notation, complete rows and/or columns, Determinant, Transpose, Eigenvector, Eigenvalue.
-Laplace-Transformation
-Fourier-Transformation
-Financial calculations
-Graphics and tables
-Number sequences
-Conics
-Dynamic geometry
-Numerical solution of equations
-eActivities (electronic documentation tool for teachers and workbook for students)
-Basic programming
-Communication with ClassPad, PC, EA-200 and Casio Projectors
-User-selectable language


The mathematical functions of the Classpad fx-cp400 are quite similar to the previous Classpad 300/330 models as we expected. However, there is no reference about 3d graphics in that description (and none icon in menu screenshot).

Were disclosed the dimensions of the new classpad: 89 x 206 x 21 mm. It is slightly longer than its predecessor with the dimensions 84 x 189 x 21 mm, due to having a larger screen.

According to this store, calculator package should include:
Casio FX-CP400
Calculator-Calculator 3pin cable
Classpad <-> Computer Cable (USB)
Windows software CD
Quick Start Guide
Protection cover
Batteries (4 x AAA)

The first units are expected to hit the European (or at least German) stores in June. The calculator was also announced on China, middle east/asia, Russia and Latin America where should arrive during the summer (undefined date). Australia will receive the fx-cp400 in August. Although it was also announced in USA there is no release date yet.

The price that the source report is CHF 199.00 (≈ 160€) and dynatech.de speaks in 149.95€. I bet that the average price will be between 150€-160€ (and may change from country to country, depending eg taxes).

Were also published two new images using cas:

I noticed a difference compared with previous models (cp 300/330) related with supported languages (in emulator/calc).
Old models allowed choose deutsch, english, spanish, french or portuguese.
In cp400 there is no portuguese language. However was added a new language, suomi. I hope they do not forget to add support to the Portuguese language in future with an OS update. Brazil and Portugal are important markets...
