50k sounds a bit ridiculous. Hopefully more in the BLK360 price range!

Any word on the price and availability
I was there @11:55A LAS time to see it.

From a very reliable source, there will be a USB-C port, finally. Availability Oct, 2019. Pricing probably US$50K.

You need dark glasses to handle it (I was the only guy without dark glasses to have the photo taken).
the new era if scanning, one hand the scanner, the other one a glass of wine :-)

It is a single button push, but I should have placed my iced tea from lunch elsewhere.

Heard another price estimate, from another very reliable source this afternoon at RTC360 cost. There will be more information at Burkhard Boeckem's talk on BLK Story tomorrow before lunch at 11:00AM LAS time.

I received another price estimate from Tim Woodruff (reseller, who said that I can quote him) that you can buy 3 BLK360 instead of 1 BLK2GO and get more work done. His other alternative was how many Stanley 25 foot tapes can you give away to students to get the same job done with 1 BLK2GO.

Another photograph with the guys in the dark glasses and almost a stolen BLK247 (since he had no firearm protection).

The current story is that the BLK247 will come in bunches of 5 or 10+. Will learn more tomorrow or at the cocktail party tonight.

At the cocktail party tonight, the guy in the dark glasses, above is a college classmate of Juergen Dold, President of Hexagon Geosystems.
He admitted that he is Carl-Thomas Schneider, VP of Business Development of Hexagon Geosystems.

I did find out from Juergen, that they have a wrist strap to prevent it from slipping from your hand and crashing to destruction on the floor.

It looks top-heavy...gravity usually wins even without the wine. Might roll too...
