|A New Prototype at the HHC?|

Recently in posts regarding HHC2011 I've seen statements like this:
I can tell this HHC meeting is going to be out of this world!!!
This looks to be one of the best years yet.
Last year I understand the HP-15C LE prototype was introduced, and everyone kept quiet. I'm just wondering, fantasizing probably, if another similar calculator could be introduced this year.
That would be of course, the HP-42S LE.
Why? Well if the HP-15C is successful, can a 42S be far behind? After all, the 42S still exists today, disguised as a financial calculator, the HP-17BII. Same form factor, same display. The engineering work to convert it to a modern HP-42S would be relatively simple.
I still use the 42S I purchased in 1989. I could really make use of a new one.
At any rate, I wish everyone a great conference.
