    No UK keymap? Par for the course with mobile keyboards.

    $1=£1... nice

    I was ready to throw my money at this but the price + what Aidan mentioned has ruled it out.

    Agreed. Actual price + VAT translates to £76.91

    Hmm, for that £23ish extra, I'd expect a UK keymap.

    Shame that they launched a good product then screw it up with US-only and a high price.

    For comparison, the Logitech Keys-To-Go is less than £55 but that one is Android or Window7 only. Okay, the Logi also isn't foldable and is smaller keys, but it is "spill resistant" and available with GBP symbol.

    I dont expect to pay a penny more for them to change a couple of printed caps!

    99 quid. Sod off. It might be folding, but http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00QRQZLQO?ref_=gb1h_tit_m-6_9307_7abfd898&smid=A997R38YICSI3 is £12 right now.

    or any number of other folding (although not quite so fancy) keyboards for around £20...

    Having said that I do personally like ms keyboards but not £99 worth, it's the same overkill on the price like the surface keyboards.
