Word on the street is that Asus' Eee Keyboard could start shipping at the end of this month. The price is projected to be somewhere between $400 and $600.
We saw this nifty little nettop at CES 2009. Originally scheduled for a June '09 launch, there's been so many delays since then that we've lost track of the device numerous times. Despite all that, we're still excited about seeing this device hit shelves. Packing an entire computer into just a keyboard, the device has been hailed as a great solution for those looking for a compact and discrete HTPC.
The Eee Keyboard will come in two flavors, one with wireless HDMI and one with wired HDMI. It runs on Intel's Atom processor (1.6GHz), packs 1GB of RAM, the option for either a 16GB or 31GB SSD and replaces the numeric pad that usually lies to the right with a 5-inch touchscreen.
BUT in all reality... why spend 400-600 dollars when you could get an out preforming laptop for the same cost that does everything but the touchscreen....
again just a novelty item
I had an ASUS EB1501 for about a week before I became so frustrated at the fact that it couldn't even run 1080p video to my 42" LCD that I sold it on eBay.
This type of device is "neat" but it serves no real purpose, at least not at this point anyhow.
