ASUS EeeKeyboard PC is a netbook without the bookby Shayne Rana
More interesting tid-bits from ASUS talks about the company’s latest wireless keypad. Now you might ask, what’s so great about a wireless keyboard? Nothing really, unless it’s from ASUS and it’s called the EeeKeyboard PC. The EeeKeyboard PC is actually a Netbook (of sorts) that’s built right into the keyboard. The board itself is equipped with its very own 5-inch display that also incorporates multi-touch capabilities and sports an 800 x 480 pixel resolution. Nice! Of course you can connect the keyboard to PC via a system called Eee WiCast wireless HDMI that ASUS has developed. According to the company this technology for displays could be great for the gamers and for multimedia usage as the technology is virtually latency free. Other features include either 16GB or 32GB of SSD hard-drive space, an Intel Atom N270 CPU, 1GB of RAM and all of this to run on Windows XP. The estimated battery life the company is claiming is about 4 hours. The price has yet to be announced. It’s a very interesting concept, but can you imagine going to work and staring into your keyboard all day and working? That should be fun. I’d love to see the look on my boss’ face.
