My 20b has shipped!



#2

My 20b is on its way. I should have it tomorrow (Wednesday), which is my birthday.

Not quite as exciting as when I got my 25C, but then I didn't spend 20% of my net worth on this one. (I was a high school student when I got the 25C.)

Do you receive an email, or did you notice this from the order status page? My order was placed 6/26, but it still shows 7/28 as the expected ship date on the HP order status page.


#4

I got an e-mail from hp with my order information and tracking number. I ordered it on 23-June.


#5

I got an email that my order has shipped also!


#6

Glad your 20b has shipped. Give me an email.

Just got my email, so mine is on the way as well. Guess I need to dig out my JTAG probe and check my ARM toolchain.

Has anyone opened one up yet? Easy or hard? Screws or snaps?


#8

There are three screws on the back, under the battery cover, top right, top left and between the two batteries. The battery cover actually covers about 85% of the back, the batteries are about 60% of the way from the top. I have not removed said screws, don't know if it would then come right apart or if there might be latches or catches involved.


#9

I don't know why they even bother with the screws. I took them out and the case didn't loosen at all. I didn't push too hard anywhere because I have no idea how it's held together. It might just slide apart, similar to the way the back slides on.

Hooray! I just got the notification that mine has shipped as well. I'm looking forward to playing with it when it arrives.

LOL When I bought my HP25 in 1977, the $122 it cost me was about 90% of my net worth. And yes, the two-year buildup of this purchase made it one of the most exciting purchases of my young life. I still have the HP25 and it still works like new.
