We already knew the keyboard has a 5in touchscreen. Now we learn from the The Boy Genius Report website that it features a 1.6GHz Atom processor, has 1GB of DDR 2 memory and the option of a 16GB or 32GB solid-state drive.

According to BGR's unnamed source, the Windows XP-based keyboard can connect to the web over 802.11n. Bluetooth 2.0 is also on board.
