I read that it debuted at Dayton, just ran across it today. No price yet.

That LCD display appears to be an improvement on previous models.

Cannot see me buying it. No V/UHF multimode capability.
Also seems small and fiddly for my fingers and eyesight

I have no interest in either but R & L is taking reservations for it for $1.00 .
If you change your mind they will refund your $1.00...

Got to play a bit with the FT-891 few days ago. Nothing impressive, modest rig, very menu driven. The only semi-interesting thing about it is it's the smallest and lightest 100W HF radio ever made, marginally (857 is pretty close and it also has VHF/UHF). Price is expected to be around EUR ~600, with another 200 for the external FC-50 tuner.

To answer the unspoken question, Yaesu didn't put VHF/UHF in this one because they want you to buy the FT-991 for that.

Is the bandscope in it a real time scope, or does it mute the audio as you do each scan?

Mutes audio just like in older models (FT-817/857/897), but it is a little faster.

Is this not Yaesu's first mobile HF rig with IF-DSP?

I think this is my next HF mobile rig!

I also don't think that is the entire manual, that will be released with the rig. Nice to see the parametric EQ settings available in the menu , however.

The 991 is hardly a mobile rig

I enquired with the Hong Kong agent a few days ago but they have received no information on availability here yet.
