Optimus keeps trickling out even more impressive photos of the Upravlator keyboard, a grown-up version of the Optimus Mini Three with a four by three key matrix that are larger to boot.  This time using LCD rather than OLED screens, running at a far greater resolution, Upravlator is aimed at macro-using graphic designers, computer musicians and people doing video processing, hooking up to a spare graphics card port to drive the mini-screens.

It's a sexy piece of kit, certainly; the bevelled edges above being particularly good at making each button look like a glowing gem.  Optimus claim that they're still on course for building a full keyboard using the LCD keys, coming in at "the price of a high-end cellphone" (or around $1000 as concensus puts it).
