RE: HP-39GII: Will it become a desired collectible?
So, to summarize my findings so far:

1. This HP-39GII is not a model that most of our fellow collectors will cherish, due to a number of different reasons:
1.1 It is not RPN;
1.2. It is oriented to education only;
1.3. The colors are not attractive to many;
1.4. It is too new to be a collectible that can be discussed here;
1.5. It can't be re-purposed due to insufficient information, high sdk costs and SoC obsolescence.
1.6. Other reasons?

2. Some people report a number of issues related to firmware bugs, that were never fixed.

3. Other people report issues when trying to update the firmware using the existing HP tools.

4. So far, I couldn't find reports on failing hardware.

For alll of the above, I'm very happy to have acquired my HP-39GII, still new in the box.
I guess it will stay sealed in the blister for the next years to come.
20 years from now we will talk again on this subject Smile
