I just discovered this post now (looking for WP 43S news)... Well done for such a step forward!
I appreciate that the first 50 pilot units batch is covered, but if you plan/need to issue more, please tell me and I'll take one.
Thanks

We should let the tardy brigade fight that out internally ;)

Hello, I am also interrested by that "ultimate" RPN calculator.

Any update regarding its general WP43S introduction schedule ?

- Hardware readyness :
Base is DM42, so WP43S hardware should be 100% already, only difference is the keyboard , am i right ?
WP43S specific one piece keyboard mold should be almost made since some samples are near to be out for testing, right ?
When about ? :mrgreen:

- Software development :
Lot of works going on and still has to be done by the great contributors to that project ! :geek:
When, about, are you expecting a first release "good for sales", even if some functions are still missing ?
Since the software is easily updatable, WP43S calculators could be on the market prior to 100% completion of the software by warning customers of course.
Then can we expect some further software upodates down the road with additionnal functions comming from later HPs such as 48 for instance ?
Or it will have to be a 100% new calculator project ?

Sorry for the questions ;)

Thanks for your questions, chr_yoko. I try answering in order of entry:
  1. The scheme as sketched in the OP applies still.
  2. Yes, you are. (Edit: Sorry, deviating glass and backside, too. :? )
  3. Almost. ;)
  4. No idea yet.
  5. As soon as hardware is ready. Cf. the OP. 8-)
  6. We'll be very happy when all will be implemented as specified. :D Please ask me again then.

I would also like to purchase one. I just saw this thread, so I'm hopeful that I can still get in!

Thank you in advance!

Rick,

Thanks for your interest. Though you'll be not covered by the pilot batch anymore. But - usually - the pilot batch is just to verify that all assumptions hold and the samples come out as expected. So there will be regular production batches after the pilot. Thanks for your patience.
