Is it, could it, maybe will it really happen this time? Is the ASUS Eee Keyboard really coming out?
It would seem so, at least according to Amazon.com, which just listed the Eee Keyboard on its website for pre-order. There are no photos yet, and no release date listed, but you can in fact promise to shell out $599.99 in exchange for the promise of your own Eee Keyboard.
Yes – $599.99. The earlier, rather expensive asking price which was rumored does appear to be true. That seems like an awful lot for a last-generation Atom with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of flash storage. Still, there are a few interesting things of note in the Amazon specifications, such as a built-in battery claiming 4 hours of battery life. I’m not sure what that would be used for, exactly – it could be an error on Amazon’s part – but we’ll hopefully know more soon.
