NCIX officially has this thing available for about 65$. I'm contemplating picking this up, though wanting to know if anyone has gotten the new one and how they like it (perhaps with xbmc?)

I've been off for 2 weeks. When I'm back tomorrow I'll see if mine has come in and post back.

Keyboard arrived in today. Will be trying it out later at home to see how it works. But for now here is some pics and to show you the size of this guy.

The keyboard has a bit of flex to it if you try to twist it but overally it feels fairly firm and the keys on it aren't soft and take a firm push.

So I have now played around with a bit and a few things.

All keys function properly in XBMC but don't work properly in SMPlayer; haven't tried VLC not installed.
Mouse is a bit weird as it sits flat to the controller and I wish it was perhaps raised a bit more like blackberry pearls.

I definitely like the unit as I no longer have to get up to use the mouse and keyboard.

Do the keys have any travel?

Travel?

The keyboard keys feel like the ones on my touch pro keyboard.
