On my call with Mark I mentioned that a USB version would be a great thing. Noting, among other reasons, that one TREGer moved to a new contract somewhere where wireless keyboards were not allowed and it was causing him considerable stress.
I was not sure if that was public information and was glad to see it mentioned on the forum a few weeks ago.
This should be an actual USB keyboard, not USB charging while using BLE. Think of all the "gating issues" that would have been bypassed by a USB-only TB! Of course the original idea was that it was to be used with phones so it had to be BLE all along.
I will plan to by the USB version when it becomes available.
As for more keys, yes I would take some, but I am going to try to live with the TB as-is. While programming with the TB I sometimes give up looking for a special character and use another keyboard connected to the workstation. If I made a cheatsheet for those key's location on the TB it would help...
