Texas Instruments WiFi adapter adds wireless to fancy calculators

Texas Instruments may have been pipped to the post by NVIDIA when it came to getting an OMAP 4 chipset out the door, but it seems the company is leading the way in fancy calculators. Spotted crossing the FCC is the TI-Nspire CX Navigator, a WiFi b/g adapter intended for Texas Instrument's TI-Nspire range of "learning handhelds" (as fancy calculators are now known).

The exact purpose of the wireless network adapter isn't made clear in the FCC filing, but looking at TI's site it would seem likely that the accessory will allow files to be transferred remotely to the TI-Nspire devices rather than requiring them to be physically connected to a computer. The company already offers one wireless system, so we'll have to wait to find out how maths students will benefit from the updated version.
