ASUS sees no market for smartbooks

Posted on Wednesday, August 26 2009 @ 02:32:16 CEST by

Asustek CEO Jerry Shen said he sees no clear market for smartbooks. It appears the Eee PC smartbook, which features the Qualcomm Snapdragon chip and Google Android OS, has been put in the freezer.
The company raised hopes it would soon launch an Eee PC smartbook based on chips made by Qualcomm and running Google's Android mobile operating system when such a device was displayed at the Computex Taipei electronics show in June. But the company quickly put the project on the back burner, refusing to discuss it days later at a press event that featured Asustek's chairman alongside executives from microprocessor maker Intel and OS giant Microsoft.

It appears the Android device remains in deep freeze.

"Currently, I still don't see a clear market for smartbooks," said Jerry Shen, CEO of Asustek Computer, during an investors' conference in Taipei.
