Like the idea of the Asus Eee keyboard, but don't fancy splashing out almost $600 for the pleasure of owning a PC within a keyboard?

Then you could be in luck as Omnio has unleashed its WowKeys device, which basically turns a regular keyboard into a computer, using the power of your iPhone. Simply plug your iOS device into the dock and away you go.

It's compatible with the iPhone 3GS and the iPhone 4, and plays nicely with both Windows and Mac OS X.

If you've got a PC-based home media centre, this could be just the device to control all of your big screen media consumption.

And, at $105, it makes a lot more sense than the Eee keyboard, especially if you've already got a load of kit set up.

Reports suggest that the Omnio WowKeys will hit online shops "soon", although there's no concrete confirmation as of yet.
