Not a whole lot of details about this one, but it obviously seems to be the Akai LPK25 and LPD8 meshed together with some extra buttons. Having been a user of the LPK 25 I expect good performance out of this along with the LPD8 I just ordered. While being micro in sized, they were light and had just enough spring to support natural playing.

Being quite the supporter of the one laptop bag / one gig philosophy, I have no doubt this will be a quick success for those that think likewise. Especially when it retails for 99$ and both the LPK25 LPD8 retail or 70$.
