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.
