In the latest twist of the Eee Keyboard’s delay, DigiTimes reports the entertainment-PC-in-a-keyboard should be ready “as early as October”. It also says the 20-inch Eee Top AIO, and two new ultra-thin U/UX series notebooks will arrive in September.
Though it cites unnamed “industry sources” (which could mean anything), DigiTimes gets specific for the Eee keyboard‘s pricing: around US$400-500. The keyboard has a built-in 4-inch display, 1.6Ghz Atom processor, 1GB of RAM, 16/32GB SSD, Wi-Fi and a wireless HDMI dongle.
Meanwhile, the Nvidia Ion-based 20-inch Eee Top ET2002 AIO, and Eee Box nettop are expected to cost about $US670 and $US300 in September.
The ET2002 has an Atom 330 CPU, 1600 by 900 resolution, 2GB RAM, 250GB hard disk, and 802.11n Wi-Fi.
Bonus news: DigiTimes also says HP is expected to launch an Ion-based netbook in September, along with some new ultra-thin netbooks. We’re gonna be busy! [DigiTimes]
