## Calculator that has wireless access?

Are there any calculators out there (like ti's or other) that can communicate with other calculators via text messaging?

Our teacher said he will not allow any calculators on one of his exams because of this. I find it hard to believe that such a thing exists because i cant turn up any results in yahoo or google.

Am I wrong? Thanks

 The only thing I can think of is a palm pilot or something with more advanced calculator software installed.

He's probably afraid of someone being sent the answers. I saw a report on tv about kids photographing test answers on their cell phones and then simply copying the answers off of the cell phones during the test.

 When everyone is half way through the exam, you bust your calculator and go to town:
 What kind of test is it?

Calculators? I'm gonna go out on a limb and say nope. Cell phones, palm pilots certainly though.

However like cyrus, if calculators are banned, I doubt you'll need one. That would just be cruel on the part of the professor.

They exist okay..... Google on bluetooth calculator and you will find them; like this one here:
 Casio's wireless USB calculator/keypad This just in from the "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" department: Since die hard calculator users refuse to toss those relics and use their onscreen counterparts, Casio has decided to take a traditional calculator, add some RF circuity and a USB dongle, and sell it as a combo calculator and numeric keypad that can be used with or without a computer. Sure, there have been other calculator/keypad combos before, but most have been wired, and none have so successfully simulated the look of a take-and-toss dollar-store model. Of course, you'd better be careful not to take that look too literally, since prices on these range from $45 to$63.
