Default Optimus OLED keyboards face more setbacks

More changes and more disappointment from Optimus, the company recently tagged as having one of the biggest Vaporware products of 2006. It seems the OLED full sized keyboard they had planned to add-on to the existing 3-button mini OLED keyboard will not feature rich color buttons, but instead will have only black and white keys. While a larger, full-color version is planned in the future, the company is already having great difficulty in matching releases with announced deadlines.

Will they even be able to deliver the black and white version? Moreover, what real advantage would it have over any other keyboard? Things aren't looking so bright for Optimus.

Black and white keys? That defeats the purpose of having OLED keys. What a joke, now I'll never buy one. How about this:

Instead of changing the key colours, CHANGE THE KEY LAYOUT to a usable one.
