The Asus Eee Keyboard is a veritable netbookAfter showing up at various tradeshows and causing waves all around, the Asus Eee Keyboard is finally set to be out this June; or at least this is what a report by Engadget Chinese claims.
 
You might be thinking – what is so special about a keyboard? But this is no ordinary keyboard. If the description from Asus is to be believed, it is “a fully functional PC”. In other words, it is a full netbook built into a keyboard.
 
The specifications as revealed by Asus include a 1.6GHz Atom processor, 1GB DDR2 RAM, choice between 16GB or 32GB SSD, Wi-Fi b/g/n, and Bluetooth. On the ports side, the keyboard reportedly has HDMI, three USB ports, VGA, and audio I/O. Additionally, the keyboard also boasts of a 5in touch panel and wireless HDMI out, features which make it stand out.
 
The touchscreen doubles as a multi-function multimedia remote, browser, media player and calculator. Weighing an amazingly light 900g, the wired HDMI version is expected to be priced around $400, while the wireless HDMI model might cost around $600.
 
Impressive specifications for a keyboard, but still to be backed by proven performance; if you find it interesting, just wait for June and you might have one in your hands.
