NovaTouch TKL Community Tour

Image

Hello DT Community,

After discussion with some of the forum admins we want to check for interest in a NovaTouch TKL (European) Tour. If we also get a lot of interest from other global regions we can look into also a North American and other tour, but for now, first plan is a European Tour.

(Read the rules carefully if you wish to participate.)

1. As of this post, you must be a deskthority member (in Europe) with over 15 posts. Exceptions can be made on this rule if someone from the DT community meeting the criteria for this tour can vouch for you - maybe they have done business with you on another forum or you know each other in person.

2. Each person may try the keyboard for 1 week before passing it on to the next person (this may change depending on the interest generated). Organise this yourselves via PM on DT. I don't need to be involved in the PM, but I may request status updates in this thread.

3. Please use a postage method with tracking. Even if it's the cheapest method possible, I would prefer that the keyboard can be tracked. If you cannot post with tracking, do not apply.

4. If you already own a NovaTouch TKL, please don't apply

5. Post your opinions, findings and pictures in this thread or a review topic on this forum.
From these comments there will be 1 winner picked by me in collaboration with the forum admins whoever has the most fun and best sharing and will end up winning the NovaTouch TKL for free

Register your interest here. The board will make its way to the first destination when 10 eligible people have registered their interest.

Product Specs:

ANSIthority unite!

Note how whenever ISO is available we prefer ANSI. And when things are ANSI only, everybody asks where's the ISO?

Correct answer: both.

Remember to optimise the tour order to reduce people's shipping costs. Best to do one country, then another.

I'd be interested if there's a US tour. Southern California -- I suspect I'm not the only one and we might even be able to pass it along personally rather than shipping it around. (Might as well make it open to Canadians too, so long as it only has to cross the border once each way.)

Bostonish here, and I'd be very keen on trying out a novatouch (never tried topre at all tbh) if there was a North American tour.

I think it goes without saying that the vast majority of us would vote for ANSI. ;)
