The Commodore Invictus is picking a fight with the Asus Eee Keyboard for supremacy in the PC-in-a-keyboard with a touchscreen-on-the-side category, and with the specs Commodore is listing, it may just win. Well, if it ever releases.
It took ASUS over a year to get the Eee Keyboard to the point where it was ready to go on sale, so don't go pinning your hopes on Commodore's Invictus keyboard (which thieves most of ASUS' ideas anyway).
You'd expect a portable keyboard with a 5-inch LCD thrown in to have a better battery life than the average low-end netbook, but ASUS has revealed the full, final specs of the EeeKeyboard, which will sell for $599.
Hell yes. Asus has finally committed to an October U.S and European arrival for its entertainment-PC-in-keyboard. The sleek device has a 5-inch touchscreen and Ultra Wideband HDMI (with receiver) to connect to your TV. I want it on my coffee-table.
In the latest twist of the Eee Keyboard's delay, DigiTimes reports the entertainment-PC-in-a-keyboard should be ready "as early as October". It also says the 20-inch Eee Top AIO, and two new ultra-thin U/UX series notebooks will arrive in September.
Engadget Chinese got some footage of the Eee Keyboard in action, and judging from the video, the touchscreen-endowed keyboard looks like it has some promise. The secret behind its mojo? It runs a standalone version of Windows XP.
