$50 is if you plan to buy 1000.

What is funny is that the company who build them is a PC keyboard manufacturer, they market it as a "google TV box", maybe they will have the idea to integrate it in their keyboards…

I'll believe it when - and if - it happens.  From what I heard the guy doing the video said next month but I think the girl he was talking to muttered something about six months but didn't like to dampen his enthusiasm.

If it's $50 in 1000s then it's going to be closer to $75 in small numbers.

No working model at this moment, vague release date, vague pricing, random Chinese keyboard company, representative knows nothing of the inner workings, no exact cpu known, no list of components

If it works; good for them!
