Is there a difference between workstation and arranger keyboards as some call it?
I am not sure if there is a firm definition, but to me a workstation is designed to replace a DAW and will have the ability to record and edit live audio (so you can record a guitar track in your 'keyboard' and an arranger tends to be more midi focused with lots of clever bits already recorded so you can throw a song together quickly (auto drums, fill, intro etc)- but all that's just my opinion and I am sure there is a lot of overlap!
Something like the Korg Oasis was about the ultimate Workstation, a desert island synth, all you need etc...and it was very expensive! Closest I ever had was an Alesis Fusion ...never really worked for me (though sounded great), always ended up back with DAW and VST...
Now if the 'Wi' has a 24 inch touch screen and host VSTs and has an X32 internally for live input, recording and FX they may have a next gen workstation!
PS -Wiard Modular have some interesting modules, but the early picture from B showing there entry to ER was based on the Roland system.

I guess the 'Wi' could be a cheap Eurorack case with Modules launched at the same time!
