The next generation of Asus devices
We are but minutes away from the Asus press conference at Computex 2013 in Taipei. Keep up with the latest from the event with our live coverage.
Asus has been teasing us with images of transforming Android statuettes all through last week, so we do have an inkling for what to expect. The company will unveil new products in its Transformer range of devices, so we can expect a new tablet or a hybrid device. The teasers hinted at an Android device with a stylus and voice calling features, so we do know that these things will be a part of whatever product the company announces. There's also word that a Transformer Infinity Ultrabook will be shown off.
There are also some rumours floating around that the company will show off a refreshed version of the Nexus 7 tablet at the show. Asus is also rumoured to be announcing an HD version of the Memo Pad budget tablet. We won’t have to wait too long to find out.
