Call from HP
Message #1 Posted by r.j. bied on 11 Jan 2000, 6:35 p.m.

Hi, I recently visited HP's web site and they have a feature to e-mail the president(of HP, NOT Clinton). Anyway I sent off an e-mail expressing my disappointment with HP's current RPN calculator offerings and the lack of RPN on their handheld and PDA's. I received a phone call from HP's calculator division assuring me that the HP32 and HP48 were fine examples of RPN machines. I told him that these two machines were not what I was looking for. I don't need graphical capability (for which I can use my laptop), but a small calculator for engineering use. HP should be able to make things smaller - not larger. I suggested that he inform HP's marketing people to look at e-bay and see what HP11C's and HP15C's are selling for, and also to visit forums such as this! regards, Robert

The size of the calculater should be that of the 42S with the capabilities of the 48! Connectable to the PC. Option for ramcards would be nice; those things don't need to be bigger than 1 cm^2 (as a small chipcard) The display should have 3 lines in stead of 2. GO FOR IT!!!!
