I believe that the calls for a 15c have been around for a long while.
Has HP ever responded in anyway to the calls? For example, saying why it might not happen, not for the for seeable future, etc, etc?
As lowly user, it just seems that HP is a closed shop and to me there's nothing to ever indicate that there will be another scientific RPN, let alone a 15c reissue.
I've tried to use non rpn calculators and find it tough. So my only option is to hope that my HP32sii doesn't flake out on me and HP comes out with something better than the HP35s.
I applaud the repurposing efforts the community is doing and programs written in the past to add a little scientific functionality to some financial rpn calcs from HP. Is this the new way forward, make financial rpn calcs and leave options for repurposing to the rpn community?
I understand that no company would give there roadmap away, but I'd think you'd at least want to let the market know that you're still actively in the market.
Maybe this is all some great marketing strategy from HP that I just don't understand, but surely some teasers would be required to slowly build up the excitment.
Deep down I don't believe that HP will release anything new in the rpn scientific calculator field, but I want/hope they do.
