Optimus mini three touch

A version of the Optimius mini three input pad with touch input and a wireless link is in development, Art Lebedev says in an update for his self-titled studio. While still in the early planning stages, the new device would move from use of three, isolated OLED keys to just a single touchscreen. The advancement would not only make the devices simpler but potentially allow for more than three input zones or screens depending on the design, the Moscow designer adds.

The mini three is also switching to wireless and will most likely use Bluetooth or another short-range technology for those who want to use the small Optimus as a remote control, such as for presentations or media playback. In these cases, an AC adapter will be used to power the unit rather than the inherent current from USB. Lebedev does not discuss batteries but may be constrained by the power requirements for the keyboard.

Lebedev does not yet have a roadmap for when the mini three sequel will be ready but notes that concept images should be available soon (existing mini three shown below).
