    Mini Three will be the newest member of the Optimus product line. It has similar concept to the Optimus Keyboard, but it's smaller and only has three keys. Featuring the same organic LED (OLED) technology, the Mini Three will allow control of software via a configurator application. Through the configurator, the three key displays can be updated as rapid as 5 times per second or equal to 15kB/sec of data going to every 90x90 OLED, depending on what the system is doing and what software is running. The configurator software for the device will be Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X and lately Linux based. That's going to be something like a remote control to your favourite applications and software. The keyboard will be available for pre-order some time this week, at an introductory price of $100, which will go up on April 2nd. The studio expects the product to ship on May 15th. Find out more at Optimus Mini Three product page.
