I suppose the PC keyboard layout is the "inverted T". What will the HitBit layout look like?

There is no such HitBit layout. The MSXVR team has said that at a later stage they may offer the possibility to choose between standard cursor keys and MSX alike big, oversized cursor keys (like those in Sony's HitBit range of MSX computers).

+1 for MSX-style cursor keys. But speaking about keys: what about the keyboard layout (Spanish, Japanese, international...)? Will we be able to choose it?

I can live without the Ñ key but indeed it would be nice if we could also choose the keyboard layout.

I am sure that Japanese and Korean MSXVR buyers would really appreciate rōmaji and dubeolsik keyboards.

Alberto said in CONEXIÓN MSX podcast the key board will be Ñ key.

Honestly all this chatter about the keyboard makes me feel a bit anxious. The situation is not getting clearer. I have preordered and paid. So my machine is going to be made. I have only selected a color so far, no switch type, no layout. It was not in the questionnaire I got. Will I be asked at a later point?

About the bigger cursor keys. What does it mean “the may be offered at a later stage”. Is that still for this (first and only) batch. Or is it for later but doubtful batches? Or as in upgrade (with a new top case)?

Not clear what all this means...

@sdsnatcher73 What Alberto explained in the most recent interview is that you will be asked via email before your machine is made.

Maybe it's not defined in the standard, but I won't consider a machine MSX compliant if it doesn't have oversized cursor keys.

I looked at the keyboard on a too litle screen. There is no dead key nor accent key.
About colors, Sanyo PHC-23J (B) is also nice. (I know I dream. It's not easy to do and it's too late anyway)
