Yaesu is hinting that they will be coming out with new digital amateur radios in 2012. This new PDF phamplet discussing amateur digital radios shows the new Vertex Standard APCO P-25 commercial radios, as well as new amateur radios based on C4FM FDMA. This appears that Yaesu will be offering amateur gear based on the MotoTrobo digital standard in 2012. The new vertex radios look identical to their Mototrola counterparts. I guess this makes sense now that Yaesu is owned by Motorola.
