Would you like to include a golden ratio number to the calc? 0,6180339887 or the same as ((5^0.5)-1)/2. So, it will be also the first calc with golden ratio number.) Along with pi-number, e-number.
Yes, in principle. But it's in already, and it's also not the first calc featuring the golden ratio: AFAIK, at least the WP34S features it since 2011 and the WP31S since 2014. You find the golden ratio in all three calcs under the name Φ. Enjoy!

Three buttons later after switch-on, i.e. on f[7] [Dn] [FN2], you will find \(\phi = 1.618...\).

I have to say: that really is a gorgeous screen on these devices.

Still waiting for my DM42 to arrive...

I fullheartedly concur. The screen enables us to create a lot of nice objects which were simply out of reach for the WP34S/WP31S (HP-30b) devices.

Consider me as interested in a pilot run unit (if the invite still stands)...
