Hold on, there. Let's see, the 35s came out in 2007, right? The 33s in 2004? So after the demise of the Pioneers, we've had two about fours years apart. Meanwhile the progression of the larger 48/49/50 series has continued.
... I'm fast beginning to think that we wont see any... other companies, at least they 'appear' to be more active in producing new scientific calculators.
In the same time period HP has updated the 10b once, 17bii twice, the 12c, what, three times? But these are largely cosmetic changes, except increasing speed of 12c. But no real change in functionality, unless you allow for adding ALG to Platinum.
Granted, this is arguably more activity than for scientific, but the only new business calcs are 20b and 30b.
So I, for one, believe HP is working on a new scientific, and we are about due for one, perhaps as early as this summer.
