Well, the HP-15C finally made it to market, and promptly sold out within a few hours. So quickly, in fact, that I didn't even get a chance to post it here before they had all gone. From the look of Ebay, many seem to be bought by speculators.
Anyway, they are back on sale at HP's online store. Oh wait... No they aren't. This time the stock lasted about half a day. All I can say is - keep an eye out for when they restock! My guess is that if they keep selling this quickly, then the Limited Edition won't be quite so limited.
Amazon.com look to have them in stock. 4 left at the time of writing, listed at a mere $119:99. $20 more than the official HP shop, albeit Amazon have free shipping. Can we say "gouging"? I thought so. Still, it is cheaper than Ebay.
I don't think I will be buying one, I find the missing binary / hex modes too useful. Any chance of the HP-16C? Potential purchasers might like to be aware that the build quality is typical Kinpo Electronics rather than classic Hewlett Packard.
