This means that we'll be able to provide several pre-configured options.

Possible configuration come to mind:
* Only F-keys having displays
* All the letter keys having displays (without numeric keypad part)
* All the keys (including arrows :-) having displays

We may have three type of keys:
* Display keys with OLED screens (what it's all about)
* Back-lit keys for the places that do not require displays (like Tab key)
* Standard dumb plastic keys

As well, we'll be selling keys separately for those who wish to upgrade their Optimus or replace some of the keys.

Since when was *cough* $1500 the price of a nice phone? Guess the price estimate they gave several months ago was off a bit huh?

It looked so cool, but for $1500 it's a complete no-go for me, and I expect it to be so for at least 99.99% of the possible buyers out there. That is, that thing is dead on arrival.
