I had a feeling they would have a new remote out soon. A lot of places have been discounting the One and that is usually a sign that a replacement is on the way.
It will be interesting to see how this compares to the Harmony One. I am really needing to replace my Harmony 880 (buttons are failing) but not sure if I want a conventional remote or something like the Harmony Link which has a interactive TV guide.

OK after watching that video I think this needs to be my next remote. I really like the idea of touch screen gestures and having the channels on the screen.

I like the fact it sits in the upright position,many times i've laid the one in its cradle only to find out the next day it did not charge.

Wonder if a RF version is coming. I have a 900 and use RF to control my equipment at the back of the room. IR does not work since the room is blacked out.
