Feel free to ask questions at any time if there is anything unanswered. 2010 is rather pessimistic. I have started the project 2 years ago, and I am combining development of the MLDL2000 with a real (quite busy) job, a family, a garden and some sports to keep my body in shape.
I am now working on the final prototype and fixing a few issues with interfacing to 3.3V, battery power and I/O, and I have already started on the final schematics and layout for the beta units. The MLDL2000 is getting quite real now and I would advise all who might be interested to save money for a cardreader housing instead and not go bidding on those exotic modules.
Pricing will probably be less than 200 Euro's, but if you want to make your own, all schematics and sources will be available.
There will be one initial production run, quantity will be based on feedback that I get from you all. There will not be a regular production as that will make it too expensive.
Again, if there are unanswered questions: you have probably not asked the question at all. I have been e-mailing with many HP41 friends and supplied a lot of information.
