CASIO releases 95% of different garbage after each successful model. This applies to calculators, PDAs and various organizers. At the moment, CASIO has nothing better than 9860gii-2 among the classic graphic calculators for engineers. Obviously, following several modifications can not be taken into account.

So, this means the Python has arrived for 9860s?!?
The CPU is same as older models?!

UPDATE: As I can see, this is same model as Graph 35+E II
A promo video. Python is available on this model and the brand new model on eBay affordable (fortunately this is available in Europe and no need to pay too much for shipment):

It looks like they altered the colour scheme a bit (white function keys instead of grey, white back instead of blue). I hope they kept the snazzy rosette moulding around the reset hole (just for aesthetic reasons). I wonder if they removed the exam mode LED?

1. Python will become available for the fx-9860gII as well and

2. The next Python update for both the fx-9860gIII and fx-CG 50 will include at least graphics, statistics, and the ability to define user functions. Currently the fx-CG 50's Python mode is stripped down.

Very good news is to include Python in the Casio fx 9860gii calculator

Coco: check those links in my comment... If you have a 9860GII, try to update with the Graph 35+E II ROM. Eddie: the user definied functions are available currently: Sample 3, I do not found information about the length of the name and the parameters and the type of return values.

Now that the gIII has been officially announced we can see that there's no support for a graphics library yet. We can always hope, though. In the mean time, I use Numworks which has a pretty nice Kandinsky library although it has no support for drawing lines:

Code:

from math import *
from time import *
from kandinsky import *
def hat():
t0 = monotonic()
fill_rect(0,0,320,240,(0,0,0))
p=160; q=90
xp=144; xr=1.5*3.1415927
yp=56; yr=1; zp=64
xf=xr/xp; yf=yp/yr; zf=xr/zp
for zi in range(-q,q):
if zi>=-zp and zi<=zp:
zt=zi*xp/zp; zz=zi
xl=int(.5+sqrt(xp*xp-zt*zt))
for xi in range(-xl,xl+1):
xt=sqrt(xi*xi+zt*zt)*xf; xx=xi
yy=(sin(xt)+.4*sin(3*xt))*yf
x1=int(xx+zz+p)
y1=200-int(yy-zz+q)
set_pixel(x1,y1,(0,255,0))
if y1!=0:
fill_rect(x1,y1+1,1,240-y1,(0,0,0))
print(monotonic() - t0,"seconds")

Wonder if full complex number support will appear down the road (trig for example), factorization of numbers, solve or integrate for max or min of multiple functions!

I second your notion and add eigenvalues and eigenvectors.

Given that their higher end fx-CG50 doesn't have complex number support for any trig functions, I wouldn't count on it.

+1. I wonder if Casio will ever release a true CAS model.

Well... technically the fx-CP400 classifies as a CAS model, just not the type of calculator that we are used to. Big on screen, short on buttons.

Here in Germany the 9860GIII will be available in short. Specifications have already been published.
The 9860GIII is compared to the CG50 simply cheaper and less capable/powerfull.
A smarter design (at least for me) and now with Python. That is a "little" bit[attachment=8141] disappointing.

The one thing I like on these CASIO models is the graphing analysis...so easy to find points of interest, and to do further analysis work with the points of interest within a graph’s domain view, even if the “y” value for the point of interest lies outside of the view...
