The developers of the Natami are flexing their muscles. On the third of July 2011, Thomas Hirsch reported that he had assembled the third MX board. Here’s a picture taken from a thread on the official Natami discussion forum.
This is very good news. It’s great to see the team making this kind of progress! Can we hope for a release sometime around Christmas 2011? If yes, that would be a dream come true.
Mr. Hirsch did also confirm that the on-board Amiga 500 keyboard connector was working properly. This means that you can use your old Amiga 500 keyboard on the Natami. It will make it easier for case modders to install the Natami motherboard into an empty Amiga 500 case. Wouldn’t that be cool?
