Commodore Tries Its Hand At An Eee Keyboard-Like Device

Illustration for article titled Commodore Tries Its Hand At An Eee Keyboard-Like Device

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).

If the above picture looks familiar, it's because it's a more plasticky version of the Eee Keyboard, only with an NVIDIA ION chipset and an hour-longer battery life, at five hours. Other specs so far mentioned are an Atom processor and wireless HDMI, thanks to a poster on the Amiga forums, who said it also comes in silver—and has a stylus. Oh dear.

If you need a refresher on what ASUS is offering in their trumped-up keyboard, it's got a 5-inch 800 x 380 multitouch LED-backlit display, Intel Atom N270 processor, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, ultra wideband, and three USB ports, one HDMI, one VGA, and one ethernet. It's available in either 16GB or 32GB SSD choices, and runs Windows XP. [Amiga Forums via ChipChick]

Toss an Amiga Workbench OS on this bad boy and suddenly it might appeal to those of us for sentimental reasons - otherwise this sucker is nothing more than a reason for Commodore Amiga fans to shake their heads in disbelief of how far the mighty have fallen. They should just return to making calculators and wrist watches and complete the humiliation cycle.
