HP-48 FRAM Cards

RE: HP-48 FRAM Cards
I wrote the EBAY seller of the FRAM cards, since he is the only person on this planet who appears to sell them (and who appears to be the designer of the cards too). I asked him when the 128k FRAM cards would be available. One week ago, he told me 2 weeks, so that means they will be ready for sale 1 week hence. But last night I asked him why he isn't selling 1MB or larger FRAM cards. (He sells 1MB and even 4MB SRAM cards, which require batteries.) He said that he would need 10 or more orders for the 1MB FRAM cards at $200 to make the changes necessary to create them.

My thinking is, it would be useful to have a 128k FRAM card in Slot 1 of the 48GX to merge with system RAM, and it would be useful to have larger memory (1MB will do, I guess) in Slot 2.

It's all very pricey for an old calc like the 48GX, I know, but this is FRAM we're talking about, which never needs a battery and which is actually faster than the SRAM cards of old, albeit not as fast as the FRAM cards could be due to the speed limitations imposed by the GX itself.

So I am mentioning this in this thread so as to determine if there is sufficient interest. Obviously, the seller isn't going to make a board design change just to accommodate me and sell me a single 1MB card. Nor do I need ten 1MB cards for myself. But if there is interest from 10 of you, then it becomes a possibility. So please let me know your interest here.

I am not advertising for a seller (although perhaps I am indirectly). I am just being selfish and wanting a 1MB FRAM card. :-) But in sharing this info maybe I am not being too selfish. So please let your interest be known. Thanks.
