Asus says Android 4.0 will come to tablets by EOY

Asus Chairman says they are coming with a new ultrathin netbook

Jonney Shih, chairman Asus, and Walt Mossberg are talking in a recent interview at AsiaD, where Jonney revealed their latest Transformer Prime and also said that it will be powered by Android 4.0.

He also feels that the netbooks are simply evolving and with that he also confirmed that Asus are on track of producing a new Netbook. He added that the new netbook from Asus will be very thin and the design will resemble that of the Zenbooks, only the size will be smaller.

Again when he was asked about how he feels about people changing their choice from laptop to other devices like the Smartphones and Tablets then he said as they believe that this is a very critical time, referring to the transitioning from the personal computing era to the present cloud computing era. He also maintained that all of those markets were key to Asus success and none were taking the backseat.

Regarding the Android platform he also expressed his confidence and even commented as they have a lot of life left in the market. Asus is on track to move its target around two million Android tablets this year.

Jonney also noted that they have been trying to tackle a problem with its product, as few people can truly separate work and entertainment which can also be said as for the products that can adequately handle both the worlds. With this comment we can hope that their latest devices might be providing a definite answer to the above problem.
