Asus apparently believes the more variety they offer the better. This strategy might actually work for Asus. While Nokia is still at the drawing board to figure out a "unique" tablet, Asus is just releasing different ones on the market and see what sticks. Asus CEO Jerry Shen said that the company plans to ship 2 million tablets in 2011. Asus has the advantage of beeing small enough to not have fight Apple for tablet dominance. For that fight they would need the complete eco-system that Apple has. In my opinion only Amazon has what it takes to tackle the iPad.
