About this keyboard type

The Modular 67-Key POS LCD Keyboard is the direct successor to the Model M8 50-key RPOS Keyboard with LCD and is occasionally referred to as the M8-e in fan circles. Announced in 2011 and as the name implies, the M8-e adds 17 keys over its 50-key predecessor whilst retaining the same core layout and tilt-rotating 2x20 LCD screen as the M8 to allow for some familiarity for IBM's customers upon upgrading and preserve application-level compatibility. Being an MPOS series device, the MSR and key-lock are now modular attachments instead of fixed components. After buying IBM Retail Store Solutions, Toshiba TEC has produced and marketed this keyboard design since 2012 and it remains in production.
