Asus plans to beat PC malaise with mix of Chromebooks, Android tablets


Recommended Posts

Asus Chromebooks, Android Tablets
With the PC industry in decidedly bad shape lately, PC vendors have been looking for alternative ways to generate revenues in a computer market that's increasingly tilted toward mobile devices. IDG News, via PCWorld, reports that Asus plans to release its first Chromebook in the second half of 2013 while hoping to continue the success it's had so far in shipping Android tablets. Asus has no illusions that Chromebooks will be mass consumer products, but Asus CEO Jerry Shen tells IDG News that the "Chromebook is good, not on the consumer side, but it's good in the education and government side, and some for the commercial side." IDG notes that Asus shipped 3 million Android tablets in the first quarter of 2013, so it's clear that the company is more than willing to look beyond Microsoft for operating systems for its devices.g3cQwnENXi4
