Asus has used the Consumer Electronics Show
in Las Vegas to demonstrate its newest innovation, a keyboard PC with a 5in touchscreen built in.
The company describes the Eee Keyboard as a fully functional PC designed to be used in conjunction with another device.
Asus explained in a keynote demonstration that, although the included screen can be used for browsing and other simple tasks, the Eee Keyboard can also be used to stream media or browse the internet once attached to a television or other type of screen.
The device is designed to be portable at just under 1Kg, and boasts a range of features. It runs Windows XP Home, includes a 1.6GHz Intel Atom microprocessor, 1Gb of DDR2 DRam and a choice of 16GB or 32GB solid state drives for storage.
Connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.0 and Ultra Wideband HDMI, as well as USB and VGA ports.
Asus said that the design is still in the concept stage, despite it looking well advanced, and declined to announce any release information.
