Those who have the 3500 already have a pretty decent crop of well developed firmwares from which to choose. However, my 3520 arrives tomorrow. I realize the 1.04 firmware is might green, and it seems that even the modified 1.24 firmware has a way to go. I figured that better firmware would come in time.
Now that news of the 3530 has leaked, what does that mean to me? Does it suggest that NEC has already cut bait on the 3520? Will they put their firmware development efforts into the newest model, and leave the 3520 to wilt on the vine? Did they discover some horrible hardware defect in the 3520 that necessitated a whole new revision?
Or am I worrying needlessly? I’d like to think the only difference between the 3520 and 3530 is the firmware, but something tells me no. After all, the 3500 and the 3520 share little in terms of hardware.
