I just hope Castle still thinks it's worth their while to build an Iyonix II - technically it's certainly possible and I assume enough progress has been made now to make it a substantial improvement over the original Iyonix. The question is, do they still believe it's feasible to invest the time and effort in our current market? How many people will buy it within, say, the first year of production?

I'm sure that if they see an economical possibility to do so, they will. Perhaps it also depends on how RISC OS 5 works out - if parts of it actually are to be open sourced and development thereof would be considerable, it could take a load of Castle so they could concentrate more on Iyonix II and its hardware support...

By the way, it would be nice if they'd lowered pricing of the first Iyonix to tempt those still using legacy hardware. :)
