Hot on the heels of the introduction of the Asus Eee Top ET2002T all-in-one PC with NVIDIA ION graphics, Asus could be ready to ship two more multimedia-centric devices soon. First up is the Eee Keyboard, which the company first introduced in January. But according to DigiTimes, this PC-in-a-keyboard could hit the streets as soon as October.
The Eee Keyboard features an Intel Atom processor, a solid state disk, a 5 inch, 800 x 480 pixel touchscreen display, and wireless HDMI. It’s designed to make it easy to access PC and internet content on a TV.
Asus is also launching the first member of the Eee Box nettop family to sport NVIDIA ION graphics. The EB1012 is a small, low power desktop PC with a dual core Atom 330 CPU, NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics, 2GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive, 802.11bg/n WiFi, 6 USB ports, an eSATA port, and VGA, and HDMI outputs.
The EB1012 isn’t the first Eee Box to shun Intel’s integrated graphics solutions. Other models ship with ATI Radeon graphics. But this is the first model to sport NVIDIA ION, which is designed specifically for low power devices.
Is there any ballpark pricing on the Eee Keyboard yet? The could sell millions of these at $299. Not so much at $799.
