The Asus Eee keyboard computer-in-a-keyboard lets you surf the web from the couch without sticking a PC tower in your home media system. Just fire up the Eee Keyboard, use the wireless HDMI system to connect it to your TV, and use the built-in touchscreen LCD to navigate and you can watch video, read web sites, or do whatever it is you want to do with a keyboard, PC, and big screen TV.

But if the $550 price tag seems a bit steep to you, how does a $100 keyboard with an iPhone dock sound? The Omnio WOWKeys keyboard looks a lot like the Eee Keyboard. The difference is it’s really just a keyboard and docking station.

The WOWKeys has a USB cable which you can use to plug into a PC or Mac. While your iPhone is docked, you could always use a VLC, XBMC, or iTunes remote control app to control media playback on your computer from the iPhone… which makes the WOWKeys sort of like an Eee Keyboard. You just need to supply a fully functional computer for it to work.

  1. Why didn’tt hey make this a bluetooth keyboard??? Then you could actually use it with the iPhone, and also get rid of that cord requirement. Does this not make sense to anyone else?

    1. Bluetooth can not charge the iPhone.
      You have to charge the Bluetooth keyboard.
      This WOW-Keys seems to be a Keyboard for desk-top and iPhone.

  2. What is enabling the iPhone to be used as an input device?What I’m getting at is could an iPhone, iPod Touch, or even an Android device be used as in input device for a computer by itself? (without docking it in some other device)

  3. Yeah, but the eee Keyboard STILL hasn’t shipped in the US. How many years has it been since they originally demoed it?
