Asus Eee Keyboard wows us all

Asus most definitely came to CES today packing heat and without a doubt, one of its most impressive announcements was the Eee Keyboard. We want it and we want it now. The Eee Keyboard stuffs a PC with respectable netbook-like specs into, you guessed it, a keyboard. Flat Mac-like keys and a 5-inch touchscreen display sit atop a very thin keyboard frame with a host of connections on the back – connections you potentially don’t even need, we might add. Asus’ new take on the all-in-one features Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n along with wireless HDMI and Bluetooth 2.0 meaning that short of a power cord, users can connect wirelessly to any and all required peripherals including a high definition display or HDTV. We’ll take things in a different direction – imagine carrying this puppy around with a pocket projector and having access to a full PC with a sizable projected display anywhere and everywhere you go. Specs on this innovative little piece of kit are as follows:

  • Self-contained PC / keyboard combo with integrated 5-inch touchscreen display
  • OS: Windows XP Home Edition
  • 1.6GHz Intel Atom microprocessor
  • 1GB of DDR2 DRAM
  • 16GB or 32GB SSD
  • Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n
  • Bluetooth 2.0
  • Ultra Wideband HDMI
  • USB 2.0 x2, VGA, HDMI, headphone and mic ports
  • Weight: 2 lbs

Pricing and projected availability are still a bit of a mystery, though Asus CEO Johnny Shih claims it will be available in the next three to six months, so we’ll be waiting with bated breath. Hit the jump for two more shots.
