Those lucky Brazilians!


With all the talk lately about the 50G's availability in Brazil, I thought I'd check out the HP Brazil website.

I saw 2 calculators I hadn't heard of before; the 39gs and the 12C Prestige.

Are these coming to North America? What exactly are they?? How is the 12C prestige different than the platinum? And is the 39gs a replacement for the 39G+?

At times like this I wish I knew Portuguese!


Time to apply for a visa for Brazil and visit our Brazilian friends who frequent this web site. Who knows? Maybe we will stay in Brazil.

The Amazon web site has posted a page for the new HP50g. The calculator is not yet available for sale. I guess Amazon is teasing its US customers. I visit that web page about 50 times a day .... just in case. That makes me a desperate HP collector suffering from Obssessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

HELP DR. PHIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

See the discussion below. They're available at


Are they actually delivering??????????


On the HP 50g, from the website:

"Assembled Country of Origin:

Can't really say I'm surprised, but I'm not exactly enthused, either.



The prestige is a special edition available only in Brazil. No functional differences.



I checked the pages on these calculators. As I could see, they are the same to the USA calculators, only the colours changed.
Also, the Portuguese pages are almost the English ones translation.
If you need them for your collection, we can arrange this!

Best regards
