    This unit replaced the Sharp IQ_9200 as the one i used the most. It's compact, light, and very easy to use.
    The three color display is another fun CASIO feature, it's not necessary at all, but it's part of the machine's personnality.
    It also allows for very nice features, such as date marking in the calendar, or a nice little color sketchbook...
    The main menu is based on the old "Magic cap" metaphor : it represents a desk with all the object you usually find on it. Click the telephone to access the phone directory, click the calculator to access the, well, calculator, and so on!
    Casio added a "just for fun" animation feature : in the menu screen, a window can be clicked to display several different animated backgrounds (New York, Egypt, Paris...). This animation feature is also present in the clock screen, and when the user performs various actions such as locking/unlocking the secret drawer...
    Navigation through the apps and the input screens is made very easy through the use of the "ESC" key acting like a web-browser "Back" key. Main menu is also directly available via the "menu" key.
    By the time the PLANEO was released, several other manufacturers have released equivalent models (excepted for the color screen), but none of them included the sketch pad function which seems to be a basic feature for such a device...
