The TI-62 Galaxy is a quite interesting calculator within the Galaxy-line. In addition to the functions of e.g. a TI-37 Galaxy it adds the programmability of a TI-57-II. 

From the technology this calculator is a mixture:

Housing similar to the Galaxy
Keys like the later TI-68
Calculator chips from TI, not Toshiba

One year later Texas Instruments introduced the black TI-65 Technical Analyst.
