I also received this email yesterday.
This is a real letdown for me, as I need the V to write long texts in German.
The German keyboard layout not only differs from the ANSI one in terms of umlauts and the german ß, but it also has a completely different placement of keys.
Now I have three options, the first one would be to take it and change the layout in the Windows settings (will lead to confusion because all symbols are in different places), the second one would be to exclude the keyboard from my order and use an on-screen-keyboard (I won’t have a screen cover and OSKs are bad anyways), or to cancel my order and buy another, most likely not as great convertible.
I have been waiting for two years to receive my V, and was one of the first people to pre-order.
My question is:
Is there ANY chance that I would be able to buy a German layout keyboard anytime in the future?
