Wow that definitely a great alternative the htpc keyboard/mouse that i'm using. I could see myself switching to something like this in the future (year or two when i'm settled down) for my movie/tv room.

Damn. Can't find it for sale anywhere in Canada. Newegg.ca has the older 57Y6336.

Looks like NCIX has it or will be carrying it for about 63$
NCIX.com - Canada's Premier Computer Store - Online PC Discount Store, Buy Computer Accessories
Serial lines up same with product name. Guess we'll see if NCIX updates this page with more info or not come product release.

Can't be any worse than a blackberry, and I find those are fine once you get used to it. And it's a much better alternative to a full size keyboard in your living room IMO.

Although, I still think that the Boxee Box is the almost perfect solution to the HTPC. And it's remote/keyboard is pretty slick.
