Asus Executive Says the Company Is Considering Windows Phone 8 Smartphones

Asus has been trying to compete in the smartphone market for a couple of years now with devices such as its Padfone. The Padfone is interesting because it's a smartphone that runs the Android operating system that slips into a sleeve that turns the smartphone into a tablet. Asus corporate VP of mobile communications Benson Lin has announced that the company is interested in making Windows Phone smartphones.

According to the executive, Asus is considering producing a version of its Padfone running Windows Phone 8. Asus already uses Microsoft's Windows 8 and Windows RT operating systems so adopting Windows Phone 8 would be no surprise. However, Asus has yet to find success in the smartphone market within the US.

It's hard to imagine a company with lackluster appeal in the smartphone industry would see success tying up with Windows phone 8 when the operating system also isn't particularly popular in the US. The executive also noted that Asus is talking with US carriers to bring their smartphones to a broader market in the United States this year.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
