ASUS handheld division head Benson Lin confirmed to Pocket Lint that his company is ready to launch a Windows Phone 7 device, but added that they're waiting for "the right time".
"We are very close with Microsoft. When we think it is the right time of course we will do it," Benson Lin, the global head of Asus' handheld division, told us in a one-to-one interview at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

So far, the company has only focused on Android tablets and phones, but that could change. Lin already carries a Windows Phone device, from HTC, in his pocket and was keen to show us.

"In my pocket, I always carry two competitor products. At the moment I have a HTC Titan and a Galaxy Nexus," he said.
