Android-powered device will support a detachable keyboard

We caught some early glimpses of ASUS' Eee Pad tablets back in December, which were then followed up by an official unveiling of four devices at CES. Now, one of those devices, the ASUS Transformer, is seeing the light of day -- ahead of schedule, no less.

Netbooknews reports that the Transformer will be released in Taiwan March 25, when pre-orders will begin at 8 a.m. 

The 10.1-inch, Android-powered tablet sports a Tegra 2 processor, 1 GB DDR2, and will come in both 16GB and 32GB storage capacities. What sets it apart from other tablets, though, is the detachable keyboard. 

ASUS will demonstrate how the keyboard will work with Android's Honeycomb OS on Friday. Meanwhile, the price has been figured at somewhere between $400 and $700. The Phonehouse in Spain is reportedly listing the Tranformer at 399€, or approximately $560, without the keyboard.

Why not make a little, nice stand for the tablet and a simple wireless keyboard?? If you want it to be more high end integrate USB hub into the stand, or even some batery charging capabilities...
