    ROCCAT releases an expanded range of connected devices. The ROCCAT Phobo concept made its debut in 2012, as a gaming keyboard with a slot-integrated smartphone. ROCCAT is proud to announce that this c...

    Guess I'll just hope my ARVO survives until Q3 and that the Ryos Phobo isn't too insanely priced.... Most of the compact keyboards available in the US are either overpriced or have poor quality. Unfortunately, my ARVO is starting to get a bit on the flaky side these days.

    This could be the keyboard to beat,unless there isn't an open SDK for it. I was wondering what happened to the Skltr,and I figured since we didn't hear about it and with all the RGB keyboards coming out,I thought this would happen. If this has an open SDK for consumers I'm all over it.

    Nice! I recently got a Roccat Kone XTD mouse for Christmas and I'm really liking it. To my absolute surprise there were links to 3rd party Linux drivers/tools for their gaming planks/mice right on their website and they do support the developer by giving him(her?) hardware prior to launch in order to have the driver/tools ready for them when the products hit the shelves. Simply an awesome thing to do IMO and one of the main reasons I am now a Roccat fan. I've had no problems with the Linux tools for my mouse and was a simple install on Arch via the AUR.

    With the MK keyboard soon to be available with RGB LED's + Linux support totally makes it a no brainer for me. Sorry Corsair.. I do think your k70 is more aesthetically pleasing.. but I've gotta vote with my wallet on this one.

    That's one problem with Roccat keyboards,they are big. I'll pick it up anyhow.

    There are 2 different keyboards pictured. The ROCCAT TKL FX (compact) and ROCCAT MK FX (full size). The prices will probably be $150+ and $180+ since the TKL Pro and MK Pro have prices at $140 and $170 respectively.....

    Sounds about right. If they can get the phone app going,it could be really good.
