WG-M1 discontinued?

B&H shows the orange WG-M1 as discontinued. They still have the black model in stock, however.

Is the WG-M1 going away completely? Anyone know if there is an update coming? It seems like a solid deal for $129; but I'd like to know if something better/stronger/faster/shinier is waiting in the wings.

It's been about a year since it was released, so discontinuation at this point wouldn't be surprising. Hopefully a Pentax/Ricoh-developed successor is released as respins are getting old IMO.

Thanks very much for the reply, Adam - that makes sense, and I agree that a new garnish on yesterday's dinner is not the best strategy, here. I wonder if they made a significant enough dent in the action camera market to be motivated to continue? I'm sure the folks over at GoPro aren't up all night; but I hope Ricoh shifted some units and sees promise.
