    Just noticed this. See the attached image.

    Did Apple just show us a new keyboard? The keys appear to be more spaced out and square than the current keyboard, and the Command key is now a :apple: key.

    It could also be a prototype. Just thought it was interesting.

    It's the same keyboard that is typing these letters. It's okay though... WWDC makes people hallucinate. :D

    Look closer. The keys are alot more spaced out than the normal one, and the Command key has returned with the open-apple. The larger keyspace screams Chinese-knockoff IMO.

    Not sure about command key - but it looks like they're different scaled images.
    Comparing your image to the apple.com page's keyboard, aligining using the F keyes at the top.

    The keys don't really look more spaced out to me, but I've never seen an aluminum keyboard with the Apple key. My wireless one says "command" and all the wired ones I can find on Google say "command" or "cmd."

    I bet they were going to announce an updated command key at WWDC but somebody accidentally leaked it early. Expect a cease and desist letter from Apple soon.

    The key spacing and shape looks the same but the Apple logo is definitely there. If you click on the enlarged image of the keyboard it's not there.

    the only time you'll be seeing a new keyboard redesign is about 6 months after everyone else in the world - with Oz being at the bottom of the world - heheheh

    Not new.
    But I DEFINITELY wish they'd bring back the apple logo on the freakin key.
