I think it's been mentioned before but changing the Units functions to work like the 50g would be wonderful. I am especially talking about the way you can quickly convert units using the left shift key in conjunction with the soft menu.
For instance you need to convert 12in^3 to cm^3. With the Units/Volume menu up, you can type 12 (softkey in^3) then left shift (softkey cm^3). You can left shift / soft menu to convert to any compatible units. So fast and intuitive.

In the graphing app, I would like to have something like the CASSIO fxCG 50 where one can press the right or left direction pad buttons to seek the next extremum, even if off screen, within the domain being shown. Also, I would like to see the VAR results store the last 2 results to make it easier to obtain an integration within the graphing app from points of interest.

The same for other points of interest such as roots and intersections…

Sure its been said but it would be interesting to have tehe precision of the dm42 from swiss micro:
Floating point standard IEEE 7542008, 128bit floating point precision implementation. Additionally, related to the manual, it would be very interesting to collect many application examples given in this forum. There are brilliant ones which could expand the actual manual. And a new chapter on how to program in Python.

Hello everybody,
I want to supplement my already posted wishes with this: Let CAS have a "explain" feature which shows how the calculator came to the delivered solution. Best Regards, Stefan

Colour eink display on each key. This would allow for infinitely customisable key configurations. Maybe even reduce the number of keys required. Perhaps turn the areas surrounding the keys into an eink display. Although this would be far more challenging to implement and probably overkill.
Turn the back into a large eink display, or have a clamshell design, for handwriting notes, equations, and editing code more efficiently. Speech recognition for dictating notes, equations, etc. Camera with OCR to load equations/text from printed/displayed material. WiFi connection for integration with a cloud service giving seamless. access to vastly greater storage and processing power. Bluetooth for connecting to external keyboards/mice/speakers/headphones/data collection. Of course this would end up with a calculator that would be completely unsuitable for school exams unless a seriously locked down exam mode could be implemented. And arguably too close to a smart phone for people to consider purchasing in addition to their phone. User configurable eink display keys would be enough to get me seriously interested.

I like WiFi with cloud integration the most. Maybe not only WiFi but also SIM card for data connection. This way, HP could sell a subscription for the expanded cloud services. This idea should easily win a strong support from HP top management. Potentially, it could help HP to improve its minuscule market share in cloud services, not on the chart even:

That's an easy one! Some of the aforementioned with regards to software, water/dust proof case with solar power capability that is simple and rugged  stuff your sleek slimjim design rubish. They could probably get away with having a few different designs for different applications, a horizontal pocket design would be fun.

Maybe not too dificult to implement even in current HP Prime hardware. It would be nice to be able to connect an USB keyboard for typing programmes. In particular, using Python, even from the command line, might become quite typing intensive.

What would *I* like to see? A shipping date!
So many signals, so little bandwidth!

my wishes?
Before we should talk future hardware, there is enough to do on existing hard and software. e.g. corrections to firmware for both G1 and G2, also for the connection kit. (see threads about reboots of G1 hardware after connecting to PC). But how? without Tim and Cyrille?
