Art Lebedev has adorned these pages on numerous occasions, usually with the much-delayed Optimus keyboard. And just when it finally does arrive, it gets trumped by the Optimus Tactus.
The Optimus Tactus is rather like the iPod Touch in keyboard form, the same style of touch control, a video screen and a range of pre-programmed buttons in the style of its predecessor.
Of course, this is a prototype. If the last one is anything to go by, expect it very far in the future.
