asus eee keyboard pc 223x130 ASUS goes wireless with the Eee Keyboard PC The Eee Keyboard PC reminds me of the days when all the computer components were built in underneath the keyboard and you hooked it up to a TV – well, except that this version is a lot slimmer and faster, you can connect it to a high definition TV, it can work wirelessly, and it has a touch panel display.

Detailed specs aren’t easily available yet, though Slashgear suggests it will sport a 1.6Ghz Intel Atom processor and come with a gigabyte of DDR2 memory and either 16GB or 32GB of SSD storage.

What’s really nice is that it interfaces wirelessly with a display via HDMI using Ultra Wide Band technology. Also nice is the five inch touch panel that makes it easy to control the on-screen cursor and can also be used as a mini media player or browser. This opens up a lot of possibilities for using the Eee Keyboard PC in a home entertainment set-up.

Unfortunately there’s no official word on pricing or availability at the moment, but hopefully it won’t take too long to make it to market.

Update: Specs and price estimates have been released by Asus CEO Jerry Shen.

  • 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

  • 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

Price for the wireless model will be between $400 and $600.
