Tokyo Ham Fair saw the debut of the prototype Icom IC-9700, which looks to be a SDR version of the IC-910H. If released, this radio would feature full-duplex operation on 144, 432, and 1296. It’s also D-STAR capable. 

As the owner of an IC-7300, I’d love to see this model released. It would be a most welcome addition to the shack, and the built in waterfall display would make satellite operation much easier.
