Being showcased at the CeBIT this year is another one of ASUS’s new innovative designs. Fingerprints smudging all over the place will definitely be an issue, but ASUS puts a new taste and challenge on classically designed laptops by replacing the keyboard with a second touchscreen display. Not sure, whether you’d call it a “dual touchscreen tablet pc” then? As you can see in the gallery below, its thin and is already running Windows 7.

You will definitely remember during this year’s CES when Asus dropped an exciting bombshell featuring their latest creation the Eee HTPC Keyboard or Eee Keyboard PC.

The wonderful news is that Asus have now revealed the pricetag which will be placed on this new fascinating gadget, CEO Jerry Shen says they’re working on two models to be released by summer time and these will range from $400 (£285/€317) – $600 (£428/€476). Prices like these will definitely be competitive against notebooks and netbooks, but I suppose the Eee Keyboard PC, once out will probably be in a market of its own! Check out the specs if you think you missed out on the Asus Eee Keyboard PC during the beginning of the year.
