    Anyone used one? How is the keyboard quality? The OLED stuff is real nice especially to use for trading (ie map the bloomberg stuff on it etc..)

    My big concern is the quality of the actual keys when touch typing fast etc..

    From what I've read the thing is horrible to type on; you really can't use it as a useful keyboard. It's a very interesting concept but limited by the actual button/OLED screen combination it uses.

    I'm really interested in the Optimus Tactus. A context-sensitive touch screen with tactile feedback is really intriguing, and I believe it's the next step. We're talking proper Star Trek stylee.

    It's a $1,700 keyboard...

    At that point you could just get a top-end MacBook for the sole purpose of tracking your stocks.

    The reviews I've read say it sucks for actually typing on.

    It's a neat concept that ended up as an expensive, poorly executed toy that relies on "ooh shiny" to sell it rather than having any real merits.

    Kinda like the MacBook Air. :D
