Asus eee keyboard
After a not-so-promising start, CES 2009 just kept on getting better and better. I am glad to say this thanks to the Asus HTPC keyboard concept which could represent the best product announcement at the Consumer Electronics Show. Some have called it the “Eee Keyboard”, some have said that this is a netbook, but you can call it “the most functional keyboard ever”.
The Asus HTPC keyboard features a 5-inch built-in display, a 1.6GHz Atom microprocessor, 1GB or RAM, Windows XP Home Edition (yeah, we didn’t understand this either), 16GB or 32GB SSD, Bluetooth 2.0, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, Wireless HDMI, 2x USB 2.0, VGA, and headphone and microphone ports.
For the moment we only know that it’s going to be available in the next 3 to 6 months as Asus wants to make sure that there is nothing wrong with their keyboard. The pricing remains undisclosed, but we expect it to be just a little too high. I guess it remains to wait until Asus makes an official annoucement about pricing and availability.
