|15C re-release questions.|

One month 'till June - why not more rumors regarding the potential 15c re-release? Wouldn't more rumor milling assist Sales?
Second, why would HP re-release the 15c the same year as the 30th anniversary of the 12c (1981-2011), and not the 30th anniversary of the 15c (1982-2012)? The timing is odd to me. Will the 15c somehow ride the 12c's anniversary's coattails?
Third, I am hoping against, and wondering why HP would only manufacture 10,000 initial units. I haven't seen hp15c.org mentioned here yet. That petition claims 14,347 people, in 174 countries, would buy 82,021 15c calculators. Is the 12% a reasonable economic decision? Was the petition even considered?
Finally, how are those 10,000 units going to be sold? According to Wikipedia, Staples has over 2,000 stores and Office Max has over 1,000 stores. That's about 3 units per store. What about Amazon, Walmart, Target?
