Not so fast. In my experience reps are kept on a pretty short leash regarding the discontinuance of products.

I would talk to your rep again in a few weeks time and still be prepared to make that purchase if HIE is of interest.
It may well be that Kodak DOES intend to continue producing HIE, but I think it makes a good deal of sense to wait for more information. Silverprint has a pretty good record of being on the ball...
In the meantime I would call Freestyle and other specialized retailers carrying the film to see if they have heard anything.
