Thanks. But which one? :?
I’m an optimist so I think it will be
the prototype 43S :)
I guessed so. But which prototype status? Please see the respective thread. ;)
Am I being too optimistic in thinking that hardware
Gremlins have been ironed out through the Dm41x and
Dm42 phases. So a Dm43 pre production should just
Be confirmation of what you see is what you get.
Software development will then continue in pre
Production units for as long as required to do so.

Therefore: prototype status = pre production

I'm close to giving up. Last try: If (and when) you read the post of 2021-04-29 15:35 in the thread about 43S News and compare it to what you see if (and when) you start the WP43S simulator, you might notice something. This is the basis of my question above. HTH

Haven’t SM hinted at this being 41 related?

I’m hoping for a DM48.

There is a post on this forum hinting at something that was being worked on. I can’t find it right now.

If that were the goal, maybe bypassing the hardware completely would be better. That is, make it a phone app that is highly customizable. Then there would be no limitation as to key assignments and what the numeric/graphic display would look like.

Surely it’s something the 41 and 42 can both use.
