wow-keys keyboard by omnio

with the first prototypes debuted last year, the ‘wow-keys‘ USB keyboard by korean manufacturers omnio is now publicly available,
providing a keyboard dock that is bidirectionally integrated with iPhones and iPod touch for data transfer.
measuring 16 x 4.7 x 1 -inches and weighing 1.4 pounds, the full-size QWERTY keyboard is compatible with both windows and mac
operating systems, permitting the docking of iPhones and iPods. in addition to charging and syncing when connected to the keyboard,
the handheld devices can be used for touchscreen controlling of the PC, including as a numberpad when loaded with a special app.
two-way functionality means that with the press of a button, ‘wow-keys’ can switch from ‘PC mode’, which uses the phone or iPod
as touchscreen input to the PC, to ‘iPhone mode’ instead, which permits easy file transfer and utilizes the keyboard for text entry
directly into the handheld device.
in ‘iPhone mode’, twelve keyboard hotkeys provide shortcut functionality to the docked device,
such as ‘search’, ‘home’, ‘play/pause’, and ‘display on/off’. 
‘wow-keys’ is available for sale on the web retailers listed on distributor compuexpert, at a price of 100 USD.
