Asus Delays Eee Keyboard Again

Asus recently demonstrated a revised version of the Asus Eee computer-in-a-keyboard. Asus has replaced the previous 5-inch resistive touchscreen with a capacitive version and will support gesture control features akin to Apple’s new Magic Mouse. The wireless receiver will not be internal as originally planned, and they have moved the antennae outside the keyboard hull. While testing the internal version, Asus discovered that the keyboard's metallic body "greatly" reduced the antennae's reception but because Asus liked the metallic look, the company decided to stick with aesthetics and make the wireless receiver external. The bad news is that Asus doesn't plan to ship till sometime early next year.
