Yes, John Lofflink's site at http://home.att.net/~microtonal/ lists a bunch
of keyboards that offer microtuning.  However, most of them have a scale
resolution of 1 cent at the smallest.  

According to his site, a 12-tone just intoned scale is made up of cent
intervals that use up to 4 decimal places of precision - far more fine than
1 cent.

I just ran across his post that says that exact precision is not
necessarily a big deal, however.  I will have to read it in greater detail.
