Default Why is spektrum lacking?

Hi, im a spektrum customer and while im sure all radio manufactures are just the same i think spektrum are great and never had any issues. (so there is no real preferance to choice)

But, ive recently started gliding again and thought it would be nice to have some telemetry or more so a vario but dissapointed to see alot of other radios including hitec, futaba & FrSky have telemetry with vario sensors yet spektrum still have none, despite it seems there was a hint of a vario once (correct me if im wrong) over 2 years ago?

Does anyone know anything about the vario that is meant to be? Or why spektrum is falling behind? From what ive seen on the forums there is alot of noise for spektrum to bring out the vario (in the glider scene), so why havent they? Surely financialy it is within there interest?

Thanks
Andy

It may be that they are wanting to introduce it with the voice features of the DX9.
