The folks over at the rather splendide French site blogeee.net have gotten their hands on a prototype of an Asus Eee Keyboard, a media center computer shoehorned into a keyboard.
We first saw this device at CES 2009, where Asus said the keyboard had a 1.6GHz Atom processor inside, 1GB of memory, and a solid-state hard drive. There's a 5-inch touch screen at the side running a customized version of Windows XP, and an HDMI port for hooking it up to a hi-def TV.
Weighing about 2.2 pounds, and with Wi-Fi, two USB ports, and a memory card reader, we were impressed with the concept. There's still no word on pricing or availability, but until firm plans are made for launch, have a look at the photos here to see what Pierre Lecourt thought of the whole thing, and click through blogeee's gallery for still more of his impressions.
