ASUS roadmap points to smartphone devices for U.S. market


ASUS gave a presentation in France earlier today to discuss their roadmap for tablet and smartphone devices, including intentions to get into the U.S. market with their smartphone devices. Two slides from the presentation show the breakdown of devices in each class. Common to both smartphones and tablet devices is the MeMO line, with the MeMOFone HD 5 apparently headed to the U.S. market. Other smartphone devices include the PadFone Infinity, PadFone mini, FonePad HD 7 and FonePad Note FHD 6. The last item in that list appears to imply ASUS will be producing a stylus equipped device to compete in that market.

On the tablet side of things, ASUS lists the new Nexus 7 recently introduced by Google. Other devices include the Transformer Pad FHD and Transformer Pad HD in the Transformer line and the MeMO Pad HD 7 and MeMO Pad HD 8 in the MeMO line. Historically, the MeMO line has been ASUS’s budget line.

Other than the names of the devices, no other details like specs, markets or release dates have emerged from the presentation. The sense seems to be that ASUS is fairly close to releasing most of the devices, possibly in time for this year’s holiday shopping season.
