The TI-84 Plus EZ Spot Keypad is more than just a replacement of the original TI-Nspire Keypad. It emulates the keystrokes and functionality of the previous TI-83 Plus, TI-84 Plus and TI-84 Plus Silver Edition graphing calculators. This allows the use of the TI-Nspire on exams permitting just the TI-83 Plus based calculators like SAT and ACT.

Within the Datamath Calculator Museum the combination of the "school bus yellow" TI-Nspire EZ-Spot with the TI-84 Plus Keypad is referred as TI-Nspire KBD EZ-Spot. 

As of March 2010 a total of four different keyboards are either available for the 2nd generation TI-Nspire or announced:

TI-Nspire Touchpad (The new alphanumeric keyboard of the 2nd generation TI-Nspire)
TI-Nspire Touchpad EZ- Spot (Black yellow color scheme) 
TI-84 Plus Keypad (The black edition of the original keyboard of the TI-Nspire)
TI-84 Plus EZ- Spot Keypad (Added yellow "School Property" logo)
