Atlona HDAiR wireless HDMI adds analog audio

When Atlona's HDAiR wireless HDMI adapter launched earlier this year it was one of a few working systems promising high-definition without the cord, albeit only at a maximum 720p resolution rather than 1080p.  The company's new version still lacks Full HD support, but now at least throws in wireless audio, too.

After telling us - and then telling us again - that the Eee Keyboard would arrive this month, ASUS are now promising their nettop-in-a-keyboard will actually drop in August 2009.  Rather than blaming manufacturing delays or last-minute firmware tweaks, ASUS claim the Eee Keyboard - which squeezes in an HD capable nettop and 5-inch touchscreen - was in fact held back while they attempted to define a niche for it to sit in.
