Eee Keyboard prepped for October launch?

First May, then June..

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Asus’ famous Eee PC Keyboard may finally launch within months, a mole has claimed.

The Eee – which incorporates a PC, a 5in touchscreen and a full-size Qwerty deck into a keyboard-sized case – will be available as early as October, the source told DigiTimes. It will be priced somewhere between $400 and $500 (£242-302/€279-349).

You should take the launch date and price rumour with a pinch of salt, though, as Asus’ Keyboard has already been connected with several possible launch dates.

For example, Asus said at CeBit in March that the gadget would launch during Q2 and be priced between $400 and $600.

It has already been confirmed that the Eee PC Keyboard will feature a 1.6GHz Atom processor, 1GB of DDR 2 memory, and the option of a 16GB or 32GB solid-state drive.

The gadget will also connect to the web over 802.11n, and include one HDMI and two USB ports. ®
