Razer outs cool new Nostromo gaming keypad

For a long time if you wanted a gaming keypad to play your PC games with your only choice was Belkin and its line of popular Nostromo gaming keypads. These little one-handed keypads were designed to allow the PC gamer to shed the keyboard and use something smaller and more compact.

Razer and Belkin have worked together to develop a new version of that Nostromo keypad called the Razer Nostromo Gaming Keypad. The thing looks a lot like the old Nostromo gamers are familiar with but the new gaming keypad has the familiar Razer logo and blue backlighting. The Nostromo has an ergonomic form factor with 16-keys.

The Nostromo has 16 of the famous Razer Hyperesponse keys that can be programmed to anything you want them to be. The shape of the gaming keypad is designed to be more comfortable in the hand for long gaming sessions. The directional thumb pad is made for response and fast actuation and can be used for movement and as a modifier for expanding the functions on the keypad. The Razer software makes programming easy. The thing will ship on 11-29 and will sell for $69.99.
