Hey, I had one of these on my O2 and I loved it.  I used it daily for
about 6 years until it finally fell apart.  I now have a DEC one, complete
with "digital" logo, from 1992, that's exactly identical (except for the
colour scheme, of course).  The size, shape, and feel are the same.
I use it every day, and love it.

It claims underneath:
  P/N: 121043-001
  Model: RT6856T

Both of these keyboards are the only ones I've found that don't
aggravate my RSI.


PS: I fully agree that recent keyboards are rubbish.  I haven't
found a single one that appeals to me this millenium.  And don't
get me started on laptop keyboards...
