I worked on the followup to the CC-40. I don''t remember anything about a CC40+, but I worked on the something called the CC80 (? I think that was the model). It had a larger display (several sizes were being worked on), it could take more than one of the modules plugged in at one time, and other enhancements. TI decided there was no market for compact computers, or really any consumer electronics and cancelled pretty much everything, even though a lot of it was complete and ready to go!

While I hate to disprove such a beautiful rumor...
My dad used to work for TI, and wound up in possession of one of the CC40+ prototypes when the home computer division was killed. Consequently, I can verify that the keyboard on the CC40+ is identical to the standard CC40 keyboard aside from coloration, and not improved at all.
Aside from a cost-reduced housing(in beige plastic to match the 99/8, 99/2, and late-model 99/4a) and the addition of a 99/ series cassette cable connector, there wasn''t any real difference between the two models.

You MAY be thinking of the TI-74 Basicalc, which actually WAS released. Despite being a clear relative of the CC40 family, it WAS different in many respects, including the keyboard.
