Will there be eeprom to allow udev rulez to start/stop systemd services depending which TOH is installed?

I think that you should try to get the camera work even with the keyboard closed! It is a pity to "lose" your camera....

About parts, what about the n97 keyboard? I searched a little on ebay and there are many of them for sale.

Because of the location of the camera this will never happen, forget about it. Pick a piece of paper, put it on your phone and mark the edges and camera, then slide it out 40mm -> big-*** hole in the middle of your keyboard!

Will not use N97 keyboard. Terrible layout, ugly buttons, not available in big quantities. I appreciate the suggestion, but use PM.

Also, don't worry about the keypad, have some ideas ;)

Re: tohkbd2 #maybe
 
if it happens dirk, please don't limit to 100 or so. I do Understand they can be out if stock and that its a pain to build then.
But once in a while you could say, "hey, right now i've decided for a new batch because i need a little extra pocket money".

or is it perhaps so that you make little or even no money out of them?
if thats the case i understand of course that you llimit them so low in count.

Is there going to be a 'opened/closed' detection mechanism?


(trying to be as brief as possible :) )
