    Icom showed off their new Icom IC-7100 at the 2012 Tokyo Ham Fair this past weekend:

    The particular model that was shown has 70Mhz for European customers and an integrated D-Star module . It also features a slick touch screen interface, which is something not seen in other HF transceivers. More information is available on Icom's UK site: Showcasing at the Tokyo Ham Fair 2012, the Icom IC-7100 HF/VHF/UHF Amateur Radio Transceiver - News Icom News : Icom UK - two way radio transceivers, receivers and navigation products

    I wonder what the price will be........

    edit: I hope the mic is attached to the controller head, not to the main body. That would give more flexibility to the installation if mobile mounted.

    It looks expensive...

    I like mic plugs on the control head as well.

    I actually kinda like the looks of it. I'd hope the control head has some heft to it.

    Almost looks like a 480....

    But with 2 meters and 440. I would love to have the version with the 4 meter band. Probably will not be available in the US version.

    I bet you could really fly thru the menus with that touch screen.

    Ah I agree on the price guesstimate.
    But....
    They should make it more affordable...ie $900-1200
