ASUS was so excited they couldn’t wait for CES next week. Vice President Samson Hu laid out the company’s 2012 plans at a press event in Taipei and what he had to say was certainly attention-grabbing. There were some things that had already been rumored – like an ASUS ARM tablet running Windows 8, which he confirmed will be coming by the end of this year. But he also let everyone know about two new tablets that are coming a lot sooner than that. In fact they will be shown at CES in just a few days.
At CES we will see a 7 inch tablet called the ASUS Eee Memo Pad and a new, as yet unnamed, 10 inch tablet with a high-resolution screen. With the 10 inch tablet it’s unclear if this will be a completely new device or a revamped version of the ASUS Prime. ASUS has beefed up their development department in hopes of reaching their goal of 6 million tablets sold in 2012. With a combination of Android and Windows 8 tablets coming this year they just may reach that goal.
