    Default Asus interested in making unique Windows 8 tablet and Windows 8 phones

    Benson Lin, corporate VP of mobile communication products from Asus said that the company is interested in making Windows Phonesand and could release another Windows 8 tablet as well as Windows 8 phones in the near future.

    Benson Lin told The Wall Street Journal and explained that Windows 8 would be a good match for the company's Padfone concept. "With our Padfone concept, the phone plus tablet, I think it makes sense for Windows 8," he said. "There is no target timeline… but we are interested in making Windows phones."

    “I think it makes sense for Windows 8,” said Lin. The Android-based Padfone is now on its second-generation having launched in October and comprises a 4.7-inch phone and a 10.1-inch tablet. The tablet derives its power and operating system when the smartphone is docked and turned on.

    However, with it may well be that Asus ends up relying on Microsoft’s forthcoming operating system, Windows Blue, for the next Padfone, according to The Verge.

    The operating system will focus on bringing Windows 8 to smaller screen sizes and on creating more interoperability between Windows 8 and Windows Phone. It is slated to ship halfway through 2013.

    Asus has already announced a number of Windows 8 tablets this year, with these consisting of the VivoTab, the VivoTab RT and the VivoTab Smart.
