Edit: Its says Qtronix so I am assuming its the older versions with the so called problems. After doing more research, I think I am going to wait it out for the ducky shine.

I can't find much information on either company, except the iOne is the name now. Whether iOne bought out Qtronix, or they just changed their name, I don't know.

iOne is the keyboard maker, like diatec for filcos.

Xarmor is the keyboard's name, like majestouch for filcos

Qumax Corp is (was ?) the American company owned by ione, who sold that keyboard under the Qtronix brand.

Simple, isn't it ?

Likely iOne decided that having a dedicated subsidiary was not worth, and they started to a manage the business directly, like filco.

2007 was an especially good year for Qtronix. They finally got rid of that rotten name. It was Qumax for a while in the USA. Cheap computing stuff.

Quote:
Qumax Corp in Fremont, CA is a private company categorized under Computer Peripheral Equipment. Our records show it was established in 1988 and incorporated in California. Current estimates show this company has an annual revenue of $5 to 10 million and employs a staff of approximately 5 to 9.
Xarmor-usa, ione-usa, and qtronix domains are registered to Qmax corporation

So looks like that your "for a while" is a little debatable, 23 years are an era for the IT market.

BTW you can check yourself what's going on, they are located in Warm Springs (a perfect place for mechanicals ) , Freemont.

I presume not too far from your home.

I'm afraid you not have a lot of options, Xarmors are sold just in US, Qpads in Europe (but they ship worldwide), Tesoro M7 in korea, and a fourth 108keys, )model for the Japanese market (called stellar something, I don't remember.

I'm in Italy and I bought my Xarmor from US (ergogeeck)

Ergogeek was selling on Amazon when I bought mine. $135 + $10 or so for shipping.
