Art Lebedev's much anticipated 103 keyboard is one step closer to completion

Much has been written about the Optimus keyboard from Art Lebedev.  Even though the company has so far failed to live up to the hype it has received, they still manage to pop up every now and then.  This time around, the Russian design studio announced that production for the OLED screens for the Optimus 103 keyboard has reportedly started. Assuming that everything goes according to plan, a product release before the end of the year is a realistic possibility.

The studio expects the custom OLEDs for the Optimus 103 to come in sometime in April, according to Artemiy Lebedev, chief operator of the studio.

Perhaps this news will help the company get back some of the fans it inadvertently lost after several web sites published how much the keyboard could cost consumers -- a modest $1,200.  Several readers previously mentioned how the keyboard is insanely close to officially becoming Vaporware, joining the ranks of famed devices such as the Phantom game console.  

Assuming that the keyboard really won't cost a ridiculous amount, I am all about getting one.  In essence, I believe that it could end up being a neat novelty item.  I'll still remain rather pessimistic until the keyboard officially hits shelves.

The quotes below all these article & blog comment sections. Everytime I read one of those quotes, it cost me 10-20 seconds of my life that I will not get back.

DailyTech is simply charging too much for those quotes. I don't understand how they think the readers will put up with such extortion for much longer.

Hehe I was checking my tech news sites today as usual and ended up spending the rest of the day discussing hydrogen cars in the comments on this site. So much for school work :P

So yeah quite expensive. Not DailyTechs fault tho. They've made an addictive drug that's all :D
