Reasonably priced displays (to the manufacturer) appear to be one of the reasons for the change in transceiver appearances. Custom manufactured displays can be more expensive than software defined display panels. With profit margins being what the Amateur community will tolerate, using parts that have a second use is almost required.

On transceiver parts, if the manufacturer can't get them they can't sell them. This has been a problem all the way back to the days of all tube units.
