Asus assures no more delays for keyboard-computer

Phantom Eee will manifest soon, honest

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Asus promised today that its much delayed Eee keyboard PC will finally ship in April.

The device, which integrates an entire PC into a single keyboard unit, was unveiled at Cebit last year. However, shipping product has yet to appear.

The most recent forecast shipdate was... last month, and the product was still a no-show.

Today Asus chairman Jonney Shih told reporters that user testing had taken longer than expected and the device was, once again, "delayed a little bit".

Shih said he now expected the device to appear in the "April time frame".

"We promised it won't be further delayed," he said, either making himself either a hostage to fortune, or picking a big stick with which to beat the Taiwanese firm's product testing department. ®
