Default Optimus Keyboard Gets Competition?

It looks as though the Optimus Maximus may have some competition. United Keyes is rolling out a keyboard that is very similar to the Art Lebedev keyboard. I guess now it is a race to see who gets their products to market first.

A fundamental difference between this approach vs. touch screen is that the tactile feedback associated with pressing a button is retained. This promotes familiarity. A second important advantage is the ease of modifying existing form factors, reducing time to market and component costs.

Looks a bit ugly. No way it is a competition. It's like eMachines are a competition to Falcon.

Yep no competition, besides there is a newer version of th Optimus that is just a touch screen with a bit of software that allows you to program the look of the screen onto it for specific applications. How ever i have heard from reputable sources that the sales an after sales support for the Optimus is a joke and shipping times are badly estimated.
