It turns out that picture we showed you last week of the Optimus keyboard from Art.Lebedev Studio was not a fake, but was a picture of an actual model of a keyboard that may someday actually ship. The company rolled out its official portraits of the OLED-lit keyboard just before CeBIT opened in Germany, and the gallery includes pictures of the company's trade show booth which is proudly emblazoned with the new name, Optimus Keyboards.

So now the official name of this much-delayed and over-hyped keyboard is Optimus Maximus. Too bad the damn thing will have a maximus price to go along with that naming conceit, spanking early adopters with a $1490 price tag, and now the company is saying it won't be available until December of this year. If ever. Sigh.

It is beyond me why this stupid keyboard gets so much play in this blog. Seems like every day when I check here there is another post about it. Heck, even Steve Jobs is probably getting jealous of all the free publicity this thing is getting!

It's $1500, it is vaporware until further notice, so it is no longer of interest to 99% of us. I think the next post about it should be in 2009 when it finally comes out.

Sheesh.
