ASUS - The Eee Keyboard Will Ship in 2010
ASUS has made the transistion from just a motherboard manufacturer to much more. A lot of that was thanks to the Eee PC line. With the goal of being a top-3 notebook manufacturer by 2011 ASUS had a lot of notebooks on display at CES. The ASUS Eee PC 1201T is based on AMD's Neo MV40:
The system will be shipping in late Q1.
The Eee Keyboard is finally shipping this year:
With an integrated Atom-based system, the keyboard is your PC. The integrated display runs Windows but can run a smartphone-like shell on top of Explorer:
The Eee Keyboard works well as a keyboard itself, but you won't be able to use the keyboard on another PC. It can only drive the integrated computer. For $599 ASUS will bundle the Eee Keyboard with an Ultra Wide Band wireless video streaming box:
You'll be able to use the keyboard and wirelessly stream its desktop to your HDMI equipped display. In this mode you can use the touchscreen on the right as a trackpad.
That's it for me at CES 2010. Ryan is still running around with meetings, but for me I'm off to finish our Core i3 review and play around with some new SSDs.
