The IC-910H is officially discontinued by Icom. It's being replaced by the
IC-9100 which is a "dc to light" "all-in-one" box like the TS-2000. The
IC-9100 isn't yet available in the US - still awaiting FCC approval.
According to Icom, the IC-9100 is a combination of the 746Pro (also
discontinued) and the 910H. No pricing yet either, but I wouldn't be
surprised if it comes out substantially more expensive that the TS-2000.
Icom plans to debut the IC-9100 at next years Dayton Hamvention. If it's
significantly more expensive than the TS-2000, I'll buy the Kenwood rig.

I plan to purchase a new home transceiver in the next few months and I've
narrowed my choices between a 910H and a TS2000. Thinking only of satellite
operation (ignoring the HF capability of the TS2000), is there a general
preference in the Amsat community of one over the other? Reasons?
Thanks for your opinions.
