It seems the HP 35S was retired from http://www.calculators-hp.com/index.html
Any other news?

Maybe it has been removed from the index page,
but the page itself is already there:

Anyone who wants HP to keep making calculators. The "high end" line of HP
calculators (such as the 50g) probably don't begin to generate enough revenue
for HP to keep a calculator division around -- they need the revenues from the
lower-end calculators, and being able to sell those is largely contingent upon
them not being so powerful that they're banned from exams and the large
student market quits buying them.

Why not just get a 50g?
I agree it's a little tedious, but people were typing in calculator and
computer programs from printed books and magazines long before "memory card"
was a word in most people's vocabulary.

Does anyone know the ballpark price it'll be?

I'm sure I still have a printed book of "keystroke programs"
for the original (non-programmable) HP35
(not handy enough to dig out, however);
who compiled that book? Was it some chap named Horn?
