No Numeric Keypad, no SALE.
I'll just stick with a standard $35.00, easy to find and connect keyboard with a Numerica Keypad. Makes life SO much easier for people who actually WORK on their devices.

They probably dropped it to make it more compact. It says it's aimed for tablets and smartphones so the emphasis isn't work on this one.

I like it. It looks very portable and seems to fit well to the simplicity of Windows 8. I might buy one to replace my aging Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000 which I have dubbed "the boomerang". If I needed a numpad I'll just use the one that came with my former keyboard. :)

I Don't think Microsoft. Intend slipping away quietly,quite the contrary. They've obviously spent a lot of tome and effort on Windows 8 and are looking to make a big success of it on mobile platforms in particularm

I own one, works great.. the cover / back support fits my limited desk area..
I find it to be a very comfortable finger spacing.. I feel it is a positive key touch and response..
my experiences started back with much older keyboards so in whereas I understand everyone poor review in regards towards a number pad built in.. it's just a standard keyboard to me, that works.. rather well..
