RE: Suggestions for new built-in hardware
Those hardware features sound more like they belong on a smartphone, tablet or touch screen media player than a calculator. Each has its place.

As much as I hate to say it, handheld calculators serve a niche which is decreasing over time. In the not-so-distant future, there will probably not be a place for a handheld device that is "only" used for calculations. This will probably not be "my" personal future but I suspect it will be for the vast majority of people. Even I find myself using my iPhone as my HP calculator, my camera, my video recorder or my eBook reader. Of course I have devices that are better at all of these tasks than my iPhone but they are not always with me and it always is.

Meanwhile I will still go out of my way for an excuse to "use" one of my HP calculators. For work, for home or just for fun, HP calculators have worked their way into my DNA.
