Something new is coming to the world in June. The Asus Eee Keyboard is going to be launched in the Asian market by no later than the end of June. While the current launch is going to be focused only on the Asian market, I can't imagine it taking too long to launch in the rest of the world. This device is too cool to stay confined only to Asia.

The rumored specs are very impressive (as rumored specs often are), Engadget has it on good authority that the Asus Keyboard will pack 32GB SSD, 802.11n, Bluetooth, HDMI-out, stereo speakers, and a 5 inch touch screen. That's a pretty impressive load-out for a thin little keyboard.

I'm a big fan of this gadget's design. The smaller screen is somewhat of a pain, but less of a pain than using a tiny keyboard. The Asus Keyboard also packs an Atom 270, so it qualifies as one of the more powerful netbooks on the market. Even though it's got a smartphone sized screen, this thing would be fantastic for fast writing, browsing, and chatting.

We've heard nothing of price here, or of exactly when we can look forward to a U.S. release. This thing is going to take off among journalists and educators. I can't imagine that a lot of school districts wouldn't be interested in picking up some of these to issue students. I doubt the Asus Keyboard will really shift up the current netbook market, but it has a lot of potential to carve itself a very profitable little niche.
