You link didn't work, try this:

They look kind of dinky, I reckon they might be fun to play with if you're on a train or something but I don't no how useful they'd be in the studio.

those look kind of cool.

the control one (with no pads or keys) is the only one that really interests me personally though.

Looks like they took their existing controllers and chopped them into smaller pieces. Too bad they didn't put the XY pad on the unit with the knobs and sliders :?
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

I'll grab the keys or the pads for computer use. There are times, this could come in handy...and they are cheap enough.

The little keyboard looks cool (for £50-60) and easy to lug around with my laptop. Could be a purchase - depending on the reviews.

I suppose on second thought I really wouldn't mind the little keyboard to have at work... I don't think I can put my ozonic on the desk in a way my employer would think looked "professional" while this one would hide behind the laptop itself quite nicely.

I work at a tourist bureau, so 90% of the "work" time there is more or less free time that I'm being paid for :lol:

If only it wasn't just a summer job... I'd get far more music/writing done.

Anyone heard anything more about these, like price and when they'll hit the streets? I've seen a few online stores have them up but without a price or ship date.

I've realised that the nanopad would be great for me to use to trigger tracks when we play live, I'm using an MPD24 for it at the moment but this would be a lot smaller and lighter which would be great for travelling, and I could stick it on my keyboard so not even have to turn toward the laptop when we play.

Plus they look like VL-Tones. :D

Of course what they really need to do is make a unit combining the keys and knobs/sliders and sticking a synth engine in it. nanoKORG :D

I think the nano keyboard could've had at least a couple of knobs.

These 3 nano bastards would suit my little setup very well :)
