Stylophone S2 arriving today?

This was a bit of a shock really. I know that mobile stuff is really gaining ground, but I hadn’t seen this coming. Here’s the details (via Matrixsynth):

The S2 features the famous Stylophone metal keyboard, now 3 octaves long andplayable with the included wire-free stylus or by finger touch, a +/- 2 octaveshifter, an all analogue signal path, a classic British style 12dB/octave state-variable filter, dual all-transistor voltage controlled oscillators, sub-oscillators for super-fat bass, an eight waveform LFO with a 14 octave range, an auxiliary-input to use the filter and envelope-generator for other instruments, a 1/4” output jack socket as well as an internal speaker and headphone socket and a CV and Trigger input sockets.

Not sure what to make of it at all. Although I’m tempted. It’s shiny isn’t it!
