I hope that SM will post an announcement on their webpage when they are ready to being selling the WP 43S.
It isn't decided yet who will sell the WP43S. AFAIK, the developers are waiting for a reasonable (i.e. acceptable) offer still. Just FYI.
I didn’t expect this as a plot point. Any idea when because I want two of them.

Actually the developers didn't expect that either - they simply had asked for the effort/cost of a pilot batch.

I’m not understanding. Why is this different than ordering hardware for a 42?

Also, can I get in on the Beta if it goes?

Electronically, it's identical to a DM42. :)
Mechanically, it's identical to a DM42. :)
On its surface, it's different: different print on keys, bezel, glass, and on the rear side. Shouldn't be a big deal :) - but apparently the deal didn't know so it became a big one unexpectedly. :o :?

I believe I understand you now. I misunderstood. Let’s hope they get this worked out sooner than later.

Technically everything is settled. Thus, the open issues aren't logical but psycho-logical (looks like the opposite).

Maybe some people are, like me, more interrested by purchasing the brand new Ultimate RPN WP43S rather than their great simulators of old gen HPs ?

I'm interested in BOTH! I'd also buy a recreation of a 65 or 67 if anyone ever made one as long as it could use real mag cards.

I bought a moving blanket but it just sits there.

Lets start with a company that recreates the mag cards for a reasonable price. That should be very easy considering the mag stripes on bank cards are the same. I am afraid It wont happen simply because a usb or sd-card interface is much more practical than a mag card reader (but less fun I agree).

Thanks for the explanations, Walter. I think that all of us understand you now. I hope that all of the issues can be resolved in the near future.
