Eee Keyboard

It’s a new Keyboard By Commodore USA..

Asus’ Eee Keyboard won’t be the only device in town that sports a computer built into a keyboard, as Cybernet is coming up with the Commodore Invictus, which has a similar form factor. Details are still quite sketchy at the moment,

Gone are the days of the Commodore’s reign in the gaming world. Or is it? A new rumor circulating this fine Memorial Day pegs claimed Commodore USA rights holder, Barry Altman, has a new trick up his sleeve in the form Eee PC Keyboard rival.

Few people under 30 are likely to have heard of Commodore computers, but they were one of the big players way back in the home computing dark ages of the 1980s. Now the brand looks set to make a comeback in the form of an updated version of the Commodore 64 called Phoenix, and this combination keyboard, PC, and touch screen called Invictus.

Barry Altman’s rights to the Commodore name, but a little red tape isn’t going to stop this Commodore fanatic (and all-around good guy) from moving onwards and upwards with his Commodore USA venture. Recently, a photo of a keyboard PC with resistive touchscreen popped up on the company’s website, labeled Commodore Invictus. Details are scant, but a certain “BigBentheAussie” over at the amigaworld.net forums is really excited by the thing.

I say claimed as Commodore Gaming has gone on the record to say that Barry Altman is basically full of crap when it comes to “his rights”. Not that Commodore Gaming has done anything interesting in the last decade anyway…

Apparently, this Eee Keyboard-doppleganger sports an Intel Atom processor, wireless HDMI, NVIDIA ION chipset, and five hours of battery life — in addition to the aforementioned touchscreen display.

Pricing or availability information isn’t available just yet, but it’s good to see some competition for the Eee Keyboard, since it’ll likely push Asus to further innovate, which will be good news for consumers.

Currently there is no price, street date, or detailed spec sheet available, but we’re sure that all will be revealed in due time.
