The Optimus Maximus keyboard, which earned Art Lebedev ire as many saw it face delay after delay, has finally been spotted in the wild. Not where you'd expect it, on a retail shelf, but for sale on eBay
. While a lot of opportunists try to rake in money by acquiring rare items on release like they did with the iPhone and the Wii, I actually didn't expect to see the infamous Optimus keyboard up there for quite some time.
The keyboard has had a troubled history, with some claiming it was vaporware and even to the point where some news sites (including this one) didn't want to post
about it anymore until something real was done. We're actually on the verge now, though, and it was barely one month ago
that the company was once again full of promises. They have a month to deliver on them.
