The EeePC keyboard might be shipping at the end of this month but the EeePC tablet is shipping now.

The device packs Intel's Atom N450 CPU (1.66GHz) and and GMA 3150 graphics. There's the option for up to 2GB of DDR2, as well as a 320GB HDD, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, 3 x USB 2.0 and an SDHC card reader.
Priced at $499, the device is in a similar price range as the Windows 7 version of the HP Slate PC and Apple's iPad.
