Found this when I was looking for something else.  I'm not sure about the keyboard, but if it lives up to the Thinkpad reputation, it would be a pretty good deal at this price:

Good deal. Apparently, it had a MSRP of $119.
The trackpoint is not a regular TrackPoint though: it is an optical device that reads your finger movements on top of it, like a tiny trackpad.

Yeah, I read a review about that.  I've seen prices as high as $200 for this thing.  Can't be that good...or can it?

Being a loyal Thinkpad user, this looks quite interesting. Too bad I don't own a tablet and don't really need this. But it maybe it's time to get one?  :D
No boards at the moment BUT working on it :)

Wow, nice find, Samir! Maybe someone made a mistake and left out a zero.

You own a phone don't you? ;  That's the only reason I have a bt keyboard, and one of the original reasons I found gh because I was wanting a way to bt my M for my phone. :)

Maybe!  But a lot of times I find that for some reason this vendor happened to get a steal on these and didn't realize what they were, so just did the standard markup leaving a great find for the finder!  :thumb:
