Because the main reason people buy these is for school, where you're not allowed electronic devices like smartphones on tests. Standardized testing also does not allow smartphones.

Really? But they allow calculators? I suppose you could cheat by txting and stuff using a phone during a test. Is that it?
That is the reason. Also, companies like TI have complete monopoly and thus can control what rules govern test taking simply by lobbying

and of course our "students" can continue to rank near the bottom of world learning
using this 1980's tech toy and
even the needest students have to give up their $100 to further weigh them down..

​Unfortunate reality. But this requires teachers and students to protest or petition against.

To be fair these calculators are mid to late 90s tech.

Well I guess the tech is technically older, but they came out originally in the mid 90s.

Amazing how TI has kept a stranglehold on the graphing calculator market. They win the teachers (veteran teachers wouldn't want to learn to teach a different device) and the standardized testing people and subsequently get to print money selling these things for almost $100. Their profit margins have to be quite healthy, these things don't exactly need a big R&D department, all the tech is 25+ years old.

Bought a similar calculator way back in 2000 for about 100. I believe it was a ti-82. And I still have it laying around somewhere. Lol.
