Also congrats on making the single most idiotic and simultaneously self-aggrandizing comment on OCN I have ever seen. You have 1.5 angles of a 3d render of the thing and you can tell how it will feel in your hand? Ah that makes perfect sense, just as I can tell what nvidia gpus will look like 3 generations from now based on a whisper in the wind from a moutaintop in Norway
I have used a Steel Series product before. This is why I said I "know" how it would feel in my hand as the shape of the arch is very similar. Look at an Intellimouse Optical, AM, FK and Kana, the arch of each mouse is different. I have used all of those (and more) mice. I know how each arch fills the hand. This depends on whether it becomes an "ambidextrous" shape (as stated by MyGaming) or goes full right hand like an EC. If it stays a right hand only mouse it can change the way it fills the hand because it's taller and doesn't taper like Kana/Sensei/Kinzu. The "unveiling" pictures do look like a full palm mouse. We will see in November.
I have seen more pictures, not just the one in this post. Talk of this mouse has been going on for some time now.
I stand by the statement that it looks like a cheap mouse. Look at the top piece and the stress relief. It looks like a cheap shell much like the Razer Taipan and Krait.
