Battle of the super-keyboards

Ultraman would be proud

We've seen a lot of tech companies try to cram everything under the sun into a single device , but we didn't think anyone would envision the humble keyboard as an uber-gadget. Yet a manufacturer called Solid Year (who could resist such a name?) seems to be headed in that direction.

Its multimedia keyboard, according to Uber-Review, sports "a VGA hide-away Webcam, speaker phone, microphone and 10 one-touch hot keys for Skype." But for all its hard work, Solid Year may have left out one killer function that rival super-keyboard " KB Dock " features most prominently: a home for the iPod. When in doubt, as they say, go with the winner.
