Optimus Maximus finds new hardware supplier with better screens

What’s that, good news coming from the guys and gals over at Art Lebedev Studios?  Sometimes it feels like you’re tempting fate just mentioning the Optimus keyboard; much like in Peter Pan where just saying “I don’t believe in fairies” kills one of the little flutterers, any positive mention of the keyboard-of-screens results in a dead OLED supplier. 

After their original partner went bust, they’ve finally cut a deal with an alternative provider who have even bested the initial specs.  Now each key will have a 10.1mm viewable area, with no increase in physical size, and a higher resolution of 48 x 48 pixels (instead of 32 x 32).

I just hope that by posting this I haven’t inadvertently ruined another OLED company…
