I was just wondering if there was any chance of seeing the Tenkeypads on Amazon in the relatively near future?

I was referring to the numeric keypad, rather than the wrist rests.

Hi SGRX

I'm not thinking to send any this year. Maybe 2012.
A small item like this would work pretty well ordered from here in UK.

You could have it by the weekend if you're quick!

Let me know if I can help.

Bruce,

I've been considering purchasing it directly, but the shipping cost quoted on the KeyboardCo website is more than 40% of the cost of the keypad itself. It's actually quoting me a 10% higher rate than the shipping cost for a full-sized keyboard (16.80 for the TenKeyPad vs 14.99 for a full-size Ninja). I will most likely wind up grabbing one anyway, I just wanted to make sure that it wasn't going to show up on Amazon a week after I bought it with free shipping. Thanks for your help.

Hey Guys.
We have got this moving, some will appear on Amazon but it is touch and go if they arrive there for Christmas.

You're killing me. I ordered one from the KBC website on the 29th based on the assumption that they were an outside possibility for Amazon in 2012, and now they're on the way to Amazon within the immediate future. As the saying goes, "Be careful what you wish for - you may get it after committing to $30 in international shipping charges based on the assumption that you won't."

On the plus side, ordered on the 29th from the UK and delivered on the 1st of December in Western New York is surprisingly fast. I definitely have no complaints regarding the speed of service.

I inquired about the bluetooth keypad a few months ago and never heard back after their acknowledgment of my request.

Just wanted to voice my interest in these, if they ever show up on Amazon.com I'll buy one.  No rush, though.

Yea I'm going to grab one as soon as they appear on Amazon, that way I can still use my tenkeyless during the next semester.  I've been looking into getting one, I'm glad I waited a little longer.  The bluetooth one would be amazing by the way!

Ah, sorry, I got confused. It is the wired model going onto Amazon - I know very little about the BT model, will see what I can find out.

Hi Guys.
They are en route but it would appear they are on the slow boat. ETA the end of January.

Likely I will be the same.

It always seems to be supply issues with filco gear.

Hi Jellowiggler
True. We do our best - but these are some popular keyboards and we're not talking mass market channel distribution here.
I guarantee you guys our very best efforts though and I can only hope that cuts it.

I imagine that any supply issues are on the Diatec side.  When Elitekeyboards carried Filco, they experienced supply issues from time to time as well.
