So sorry for the delayed response.

We have no active plans to do so. IMHO there are better alternatives available soon which allow both Bluetooth AND USB connectivity. This model is Bluetooth only, with USB charging.

they have their own subforum here, you can email them, ask for a price list, and then you can choose and build from there. you can choose your own led and gateron switches.

I had a look on https://geekhack.org/index.php?board=192.0, and wasn't able to see any USB+Bluetooth keyboards?

You mentioned there are better alternatives to the Varmilo VB87M - to confirm, these are new keyboards in the pipeline from Varmilo?

Or if not Varmilo, what other USB + Bluetooth keyboards would you recommend?

This isn't backlit, which is a huge deal for some of us.
