During CES 2009 ASUS presented a prototype for their Eee Keyboard, a complete computer – including a 5” touch-screen display – housed inside a keyboard running Windows XP. So don’t be fooled by its name: Eee Keyboard is a complete functional computer that you can use to write texts, surf the web, check e-mails, use Skype, etc. The idea is to connect it to a video monitor or HDTV wirelessly. We took a look at this innovative product.

Please notice that what we saw was just a prototype. The final product – if it really reaches the market – can be different.
