A few months ago I became interested in purchasing an HP Prime. I started with the HP Web site. There is a nice description of the calculator, list of all the benefits and highlights of capabilities, photos, etc. But when navigating to the calculator page to buy one, there are 0 Graphing models available from HP, as in none. I found it instead on Amazon-dot-com, and I accidentally got the correct/latest hardware generation (G2). It works perfectly; it is another brilliant HP design, although I wish the RPN functionality was more integrated into areas outside of Home.
My question is, what's happening to HP? Where are the graphing calculators? You (HP) brought Tim Wessman in to design the 50g, in my opinion the most powerful calculator HP ever made, and now that's gone. The 39gII is gone (understandably) but I managed to find one on eBay...in a "bulk pack" from China. The Prime I bought on Amazon. Nothing from HP... I love HP calculators. I have at least one from every series made since the Classic--in fact I have a 35, 45, 55, 67, 97, 21, 33C, 41CV, 11C, 15C, 16C, 42S, 20S, 10B, 17BII, 28S, 48GX, 49G, 2 x 39G models, 48gII, 39gs, 40gs, 50g, 35s, 39gII, Prime G2, and 200LX (4 MB). That is much more to me that merely a collection. HP calculators have been a part of my everyday life since I was middle school. Are there plans to continue the Prime? Are we going to see any more graphing calculators?
