Asus has one concept become reality, and another one that needs to
by Mark R
Asus has two reasons to be proud. First of all, they intend to put out their keyboard-in-a PC concept that we reported about earlier, and the second is a new concept that involves dual touchscreens.
The Eee PC Keyboard is backed with a 1.6 GHz Atom Processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16 or 32 GB SSD for internal storage. Of course, what you really want is the 5-inch touchscreen, allowing you to access files without a monitor. You can also hook it up with a television set and watch a movie through a USB, VGA, or HDMI port.
As for the dual-touchscreen concept, it really is obvious, really. I mean, instead of a keyboard, it has a touchscreen that works just as well. Sure, there may not be any tactile feedback, and it may take some getting used to, but I like how you can open it up and use both screens together for one big screen.
The Eee PC Keyboard is planned to be released around May or June. The wired one will be about $400, and the wireless with Bluetooth will be for $600.
As for the dual touchscreen concept, I would love to see it out now. It reminds me of the mini-tablet concept I saw out a while ago.
Looks like Asus is shaping up for another great year. Just what is this company planning for 2010?
