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. Anyways, news on pricing and availability have not yet been announced but I’m sure there will be more to come.
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. In a one line summary, it’s a pc inside a multimedia keyboard complete with wireless connectivity and of course that attractive but tiny 5-inch touchscreen display.
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.
It’s Tuesday, Apple’s favourite and prolly only day of the week in which they tend to launch new and latest upcoming products. Today they again temporaily closed down their online store in order to update a new line up of iMacs and also the much rumored Mac Mini. So let’s first take a look at the new updated iMacs. The latest 20-inch iMac features a 2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor (Apple previously offered both a 2.4GHz and 2.66GHz configuration), 2GB of 1066 MHz DDR3 memory (with a new maximum of 8GB for all iMac models), a 320GB Serial ATA hard drive, and Nvidia GeForce 9400M integrated graphics with 256MB of DDR3 SDRAM shared with main memory (previous 20-inch models had discrete ATI Radeon graphics).
The latest Google Android phone, the Vodafone HTC Magic doesn’t sport a sliding keyboard, some have felt disappointed about this because on screen keyboards are still no where as fast as proper keyboards when it comes to users who text alot. But from what we can see in this demo video, it doesn’t look like that much of a worry afterall, future improvements will definitely come but it seems at this point it is a neat, reactive keyboard with a bunch of well thought out cool functions (including landscape mode typing!).
Check out the video after the jump… Continue reading »

The LG GD900 Crystal which LG debuted at the GSMA World Congress, will be the world’s first phone with a transparent design handset. Not everything on the slider handset is transparent but the rear slider is translucent and the keypad gives off a brilliant glittering glow. Specs on technical details on the LG GD900 was limited, but LG will make sure to bring out the specs for review later this year.
So far Apple has avoided doing anything similar to this for the iPhone. This hack done by ubiq, allowed him to use Apple’s wireless keyboard to type in iPhone apps and texts and emails, etc. Making the Apple keyboard a fully functional keyboard for the iPhone and iPod Touch, users however still need to have their devices jailbroken first. Hopefully in the future, other non Apple wireless bluetooth keyboards may also be used which means those who don’t like to buy Apple’s products and accessories won’t need to as they can resort to third party ones!
