Asus Eee Keyboard Pushed Back to October

If it seems like you've been waiting an eternity for the Asus Eee keyboard to arrive, that's because it has been long overdue.

We first laid eyes on it in January at CES and we were impressed and looking forward to release. It was said to be hitting sometime in June, but that date came and went with a new August forecast in its place. Now that we're nearing the end of August, another new date is slipping into its place.

According to Digitimes, Asus is now expected to launch Eee keyboard as early as in October for around $400 to $500.

While such a device could do well during the holiday season, the long wait has taken some of the shine away from the device with its aging internals. Of course, if all the design kinks are worked out, hopefully we will see a Pine Trail Atom platform refresh by CES 2010.

    just a silly thought, will it be able to play old zx spectrum games.... that'd be very very cool....! as that was the first computer i ever owned and that was just a keyboard with all the leads coming out the back of it.... very similar.
