You haven't forgotten about Asus' Eee Keyboard, right? First appearing at CES 2009
, the oft-delayed, netbook-infused keyboard has popped up on the radar once again -- and this time you can actually whip out your MasterCard.
Amazon is now accepting preorders
for the device, which is priced at $600. That said, no launch information is given, only "You may pre-order it now and we will deliver it to you when it arrives." Considering the Eee Keyboard's near-vaporware status, we would be a little weary about forking over cash at this point -- at least not until it's officially being shipped.
According to Amazon's product page, the system packs an Intel Atom N270 (last-gen), 1GB of DDR2 RAM, a 16GB SSD, Ultra Wide Band built-in transmitter and external receiver, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, gigabit Ethernet, HDMI, VGA, and three USB 2.0 ports. Alongside the keyboard is a 5-inch 800x480 LED multitouch display, and Windows XP Home is preinstalled.
Asus reportedly plans to release the Eee Keyboard sometime this month, but the end is drawing near and we've heard the same song
and dance many times
since January 2009.
