The tech trade show known as Computex is fast approaching, which means there should be a slew of new Netbook launches and announcements very soon.

Certainly one of the oddest things to be shown at the Taiwanese event starting the first week of June is going to be the Asus Eee Keyboard , if rumors are to be believed.

Engadget "has it on good authority" that the world's dominant Netbook purveyor will launch the product first shown in January at the trade show next month.

We know it will have a 5-inch touch screen embedded in the keyboard, an Atom processor, and, according to Engadget, a 32GB SSD, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and both wired and wireless HDMI.

While it's certainly intriguing, the idea seems a little strange coming from Asus, which has been successful pushing inexpensive Netbooks that tend to appeal to the lowest common denominator when it comes to consumers. Is there widespread consumer demand for a Windows computer in your keyboard? Feel free to chime in.
