Looks great, I don't think the pirce is too bad given it's bluetooth, remote and a keyboard.
I might have missed it in the previous 28pgs of posts but... if made for XBMC, does that mean it plugs in and works out of the box? or... will you still need something like EventGhost? Does it have it's own mapping program?
I just started using XBMC 2 months ago, I have the HP remote which is only a month old so, not rushing to buy one, but, if works well I'm considering it. The random 'pipe' error I get using EG and the HP remote drive me nuts, hoping the bluetooth remote might eliminate that.

Eagerly awaiting mine!
Has anyone tried theirs on Windows MCE? I'm hoping that it will integrate relatively easy. Any thoughts on that?

Glad you got to see it at IBC, we had lots of interesting meetings with Motorola over the weekend with some positive results.
I would be interested to know their excuses for the delays feel free to send them to me in a private message.
The RCU side is IR programmable, that's one of the main features (we think) that sets it apart from other remotes with a keyboard on the reverse. The main guy at Motorola driving this is Otto who should have also been on the booth.

Yes, it will work out the box, although not until Eden will it be fully supported, you can grab one of the builds from the Pulse-Eight website (i'm not going to link to it from here for obv reasons) which supports it plus deals with the flip function that the remote supports also

It should work out the box with WMCE

So I have a Samsung TV, will this remote be able to control that + my HTPC?
And will it be released with, lets say, Danish layour on the keyboard?

Yes, the remote will control both if you want it to, only US QWERTY layout is available, sorry!
Although you might enjoy using the CEC adapter also with a samsung tv for tighter integration

Mostly, got a couple of hiccups, but it's just UK customs messing us around, hopefully sorted in the morning

Bloody customs, used to be a pain when we used to do runs to belgium for the cheap cigs and booze!!
