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 800x380 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]

    A computer inside a keyboard, who stole what from who?

      @Nato - Spot on!

    Exactly!!! Commodore has had computers in keyboards before the EEPC was even a spec on Hortons butt...

    This isn't the original Commodore, it's a guy who runs a furniture store buying Asus knockoffs from the same factory in China Asus buys them from.

    He still hasn't secured rights to use the Commodore name...
