I love this product, but it really bothers me that it's $49.99 (about £30) on the US site and £49.99 (about $82) on the UK site. (http://www.logitech.com/en-gb/pr...)

So I did what I believe is the largest study ever on the typing UX for people with only one arm or one hand...my conclusion was that we need a product that is exactly the opposite-- The ability to use a mobile device's keyboard as an all purpose keyboard. My reasoning was that mobile devices allow for one handed typing by design, while full-sized keyboards don't. I'm a huge keyboarding nerd, so I love seeing this trend here on PH.

@UXAndrew Andrew, did you compile that study somewhere for public use?

@bswen Unfortunately the data was a series of interviews I conducted, and I didn't realize at the time that it would ever become anything...it was just an interest that I took a few steps further and it spiraled in to one of the highlights of my career almost accidentally! You can read this article about my findings: http://www.uxbooth.com/articles/... You can also watch my presentation on this topic (it was nominated for a Design for Experience Award and I was a semi-finalist!!):
I did another research study recently that I believe is the largest ever on UX for dyslexic users and the article is forthcoming. I have opened my data but so far only two people have ever seen it...

Looks amazing but I don't think I'll buy it. Here's why: 1. It's not USB powered. I hate IO devices that use batteries - it can be really expensive to change batteries if you are a heavy user. I remember, I had to recharge my AA batteries every other day for my Apple keyboard. 2. There's no abilities to charge the connected devices. The keyboard is useful for my Android if I keep my screen unlocked. But that takes up a lot of juice. There's no way to charge the devices, or even a place to pass an external cable from.

@karangoel agree on 1. no USB powering makes it a tough sell!

Really refreshing to see - what might be coined a "traditional" technology company, continuing to innovate. It looks awesome.

YES! But immediately I want to be able to switch monitors via alt-tab or ctrl-w-w. Without that dial it would be productivity heaven
