EeePC Keyboard Gets Priced, Launching February
For real this time? Let's hope so!
The EeePC Keyboard was one of the more notable announcements at CES last year. It made a splash in 2009 and then just seemed to linger in product launch limbo. Now it's 2010 and the device is making news again. This time, Asus says we'll see the keyboard in February. What's more, we've got a price for it too!
Just to jog memories – because this thing has been around f-o-r-e-v-e-r – the Eee Keyboard is basically a nettop in keyboard form. The idea is that you hook it up to an external display via either VGA or HDMI. It's got a 5-inch touchscreen display in place of the number pad and it packs Intel's Atom N270, 1GB of RAM, a 16GB SSD (with the option to upgrade to 32GB), and a built-in battery that's said to last up to four hours.
PC Magazine reports the Eee Keyboard will be available in February for between $499 and $599 depending on configurations.
