Don't hold your breath on that "High End" bit.
This is not new.  It's been around for about 2 years.

Personally, I get an overdose of 'Bill Gates' every day just sitting at my
I don't want Windows running in my radio.
(Just a comment; I'm not implying that Windows runs on the MB1.)

I was happy to see Yaesu and Kenwood bring out new mid-priced transceivers.
Now that there is some competition in this space, prices are dropping.
Here in Europe we are plagued with about 20% sales tax, so there is $600 of
tax on a $3K radio.
The uplift on US radios is closer to 30% compared to stateside prices.

Unfortunately the new Ten-Tec transceivers will be priced out of the market
on this side of the Pond.
Still, there are some die-hard Ten-Tec fans so I'm sure a few units will
find their way to Europe.
If I weren't retired, I would probably be interested in the Eagle II.

It's hard to justify the jump from a 7300 to any of these other radios, once
you are living on retirement pay....assuming you are still married! (hi)
