He had high hopes for them, one being a high quality smart keyboard for other manufacturers to buy and use. Think Surveying instrument faces and retail data collection. He didn't envision the 34s as far as I know, but how many of us did?

I am wondering why HP does not offer an 'empty' Armed generic framework (with cables) for all kinds of purposes... wp34s just being one of them; I cannot believe this would not be a good business move. What if the unit could be 'ordered' with multiple skins? A group like the HHC could contract with HP for (x) number of 'custom' skins (no more stickers) which could then be loaded at a central site, or distributed and loaded at local site(s). I think the 43s is re-inventing the wheel, as it were. A very successful wheel exists, it just needs to be customized, then redistributed. Key tops can be 3D printed easily these days... customizing could occur on-line. Voila.

Anyway, pat on the back for Sam Kim! Thank you! whoohoo
