Could some1 verify what is going on with Lobera?

On page it's said now it have rubber dome keys. Did they slept over fact that Cherry MX RGB is contracted only for Corsair? If so it's quite a bummer for them....

There are two different models: "Lobera" and "Lobera Supreme." Lobera uses domes. Lobera Supreme uses Kailh switches.

does this have LED zones? i'd assume it uses individual RBG leds like the new RGB cherry does

Both of them were listed as mechanicals on official press release which you can still find on their page in December. Also normal Lobera unboxings can be found from that time and they have cherry mx blue. So unless some1 did marketing disaster in my opinion they wanted to do cherry mx RGB before knowing it will be licensed for Corsair. I wonder if my guess is right

The press release from December on their website doesn't say that, though...it says that the regular Lobera is mechanical-like, meaning a dome keyboard with sliders to improve the feel (a.k.a. "plunger switch"). Perhaps what you saw was a Colada, which looks similar to a Lobera but only does one LED color and has Cherry MX switches.

What I've heard secondhand around the web is that iOne, OEM for Tesoro, has been planning since well before the announcement of MX RGB to start making RGB mechanical keyboards with Kailh switches. I would guess that they probably wanted to switch to Kailh anyway, to reduce costs and improve consistency of supply, and jumped on the opportunity to come out with an RGB keyboard before the official Cherry solution could come to market (and they seem to have succeeded).

Of course, if they'd wanted to stay with Cherry switches, they could have done so anyway. You don't need MX RGB to do RGB LEDs with Cherry MX switches. The Korean company iPros did RGB LEDs with normal Cherry MX switches for some keys of their "LETIS" model, and Luxeed was planning to use a similar solution for all of the keys on their U9, which failed crowdfunding.

The Kailh implementation of RGB does have a LED for each switch, but whether or not it can do multiple colors at a time will also depend on how the LEDs are controlled. It says on the Newegg page that "Actual LED colors can only produces one color at any given time", so I would assume that there are no zones.

I so damn hate those kind of marketizing...

Thanks for info all cleared
