Optimus 103 Price and Availability

I might disappoint a lot of our readers with this news. According to the Optimus project official blog, the Optimus 103 keyboard will be available for preorder on December 12 and will cost US$1200. Only 103 pre-orders will be accepted with a shipping date about May 2007. Later Optimus will start accepting more pre-orders at sub-1000 price with a shipping date around September 2007. In addition to its stunning price, the Optimus 103 will use FSTN displays with a polarizer for its keys. In other words it will use black and white displays, color ones will come later at a greater price.Source: Optimus Project

Hey! To the rich guy that's gonna buy this thing... I can make a custom mouse for $1000 bucks that will remotely match your new Ferrari of keyboards. Did I say $1000? I meant $2000, c'mon you gotta have it!

All this time, and they release it for a ridiculous price? I guess the only down side is that there are idiots out there that will actually buy it, so they will probably end up making a buttload of money off these. I have to admit, it is a great stategy, and one that has been getting more and more popular. Just build up a bunch of hype about a product, keep it in the "design stages" for a year or two, and then when you finally release it, you are selling $200 worth of components for $1200(or a $20 NIC for $200). It really is genious.
