ASUS: Hybrids are the new netbook

TG Daily reports ASUS plans to release small laptop/tablet hybrids to replace the netbook market:
Asus created the netbook market from scratch with its myriad of Eee PC designs, but the fad didn’t last long and, by 2010, netbook peddlers found themselves under a lot of pressure from all sides.

Asus now wants to introduce small hybrids that should take their place, both in terms of size and pricing.Asus CEO Jerry Shen says the company will roll out a 10-inch version of the Transformer Book in the second half of the year. It will be priced between $299 and $399, which is roughly Eee PC territory.
In related news, The Tech Report writes that ASUS CEO Jerry Shen predicted that Windows 8 tablet pricing will likely fal below $300 later this year.
While the paper doesn't quote Shen as saying anything specific about his company's plans, it reports that Asus "plans to sell small Windows 8 tablet computers this year." I think it's safe to say Shen gave the Journal some not-so-subtle hints about upcoming Asus gear.
