I called today and inquired about a new Sony PCM-M10 and was advised by my dealer that Sony has announced that the M-10 will be discontinued. 

For those dealers that have no stock, prices may creep a little higher, as Sony is not discounting the unit. 

For those dealers that have large stock supplies, you may see prices dip below $200.

I found a unit at Guitar Center, for in stock items only, for $170 free shipping.  B&H has it for $199 free shipping.   Sweetwater has it for $250. 

No replacement model has been announced, but I assume an announcement is forthcoming.

Interesting!  I wonder what they have on tap for new models?  As I noted above, it has been five years since the M10 came out, so the time is ripe for an update (that doesn't cost 800 bucks like the D100)...

To be honest, what can be done to improve the M10 and keep it in roughly the same price bracket?

Maybe not quite the same price bracket, but I'd like to see Sony make a 4 or 6 channel competitor to the Zoom H6 or the new Tascam recorder - something with 4 XLR inputs like those others but with Sony's superior build quality and battery life.  I was disappointed when the D100 came out - that they upgraded the built-in mics and the DAC but added no useful functionality.

Maybe I just just shut up and keep saving my pennies for a Sound Devices 633...

For what it is, a small stealthy 2 ch recorder with a great display and superior battery life, I cannot think of a single improvement I would recommend.

Even smaller w/9V PIP and WiFi to hook up to your phone (for control) would be the shit...but I'm not holding out on that.

I'm saying nothing.  Absolutely nothing. 

Well, ok, mics that are not omnis with almost no separation.  Having said that, any other mic scheme would result almost certainly in a noticably larger device, which in itself might be a pity.

Adjustable PiP on the line input.
Maybe a 4-track option.
Call it the M11.

Remember, we are the low volume buyers, most users of the M10 are not concert archivists (us), they are reporters and that type... we just get lucky with the higher settings and menu options.
But I will take it :)

Anyone remember the M1/D100?   We are so spoiled with this tiny recorder.   I have D50 and still grab the M10 every time.

Since we're talking wishlist, I'd like to see SPDIF/digi-in on a reasonably-priced pocket deck more than anything else.

Lockable gain wheel, anyone?

That said, I may well pick up a second M10 before they disappear. Didn't take long with mine for me to become a convert. (And I'm a concert archivist *and* a reporter, and use it for both.)
