Looks like a Pandora without numbs and shoulder buttons. BUT! The keyboard is pwered with a display to configure the keys individually.

Which is pretty clever. Solves the quertz/querty problem totally.

Razer are making a portable gaming device?  Wow...  I'm a fan of their hardware.  Wonder how much it will go for and whether we will get it here in Oz.  Hope so, I might be grabbing one.

Edit: Whoops got my hopes up.  Only a concept so far, although they are in negotiations to make something based on this design.  Oh well, guess it will be a while off if indeed it does happen.

This looks cool but it will hinge on performance for me, although you gotta love that keyboard!
Cheers,

Hmm, so basically it's just a portable device with a miniature Optimus beyboard.
A good idea although it'll probably be expensive as hell.
And too bad they've also only put an Atom CPU into it.

Seems interresting though.

Price will be high.
looks like a netbook, won´t be able to bend it sideways to read while in bed, so no mobility like a pad/book.
I still prefer the likes of a low profile/price of the ND.

I believe it's a dual screen device with the second screen covered by a keyboard membrane.
Cheers,
