#TOHKBD #Jolla Kickstarter Keyboard Campaign Off To A Flying Start!!

As we expected, going by our original poll  over 2 years ago where we got a whopping 15,938 votes of which a majority 67.18% opted for a hardware keyboard option of some kind for Jolla, it didn’t take long for some enterprising individuals to combine forces and work towards making an ‘other half’ keyboard available for us proud Jolla owners.

In fact the final design is as appealing as the ‘dream Jolla’ we also blogged about well over 2 years ago while Jolla was still in their infancy – one where the Jolla handset could incorporate a modular style removable keyboard.

So with that in mind, it brings us great pleasure to report that after a small run of 100 pcs of the first version, the team behind the original TOHKBD (Dirk and now also Kimmo, Andrew helping) have put together a rather attractive ‘Kickstarter’ campaign offering up their design for all Jolla fans.

While the campaign has only been running for less than a day, already 81% of the 55,000 Euro target has been reached which is really great news!

The final product will come in a choice of colours with various keyboard layouts available and also a very lovely Lastu wooden rear with a selection of wood types to choose between.
