ASUS keyboard PC release
The ASUS Eee Keyboard PC first unveiled at CES in January, and expected to be out this month, has been pushed back to an August release date based on details revealed in a Thursday TechDigest report. What's also been revealed is that the keyboard can stream wireless HD content stored on its 32GB solid state drive using the ultra-wideband wireless HDMI standard, a feature that hasn't been present in earlier Eee PC desktops or netbooks.
Users can also access the web without an external display, and instead use the keyboard's built-in 5-inch touchscreen to browse the web or perform other computing tasks. While final pricing hasn't been announced, the ASUS Keyboard PC is expected to cost the equivalent of $400 for a wired version or $600 for a wireless version.
