Asus mulls Windows phones
Padfone running Windows?
Asus is looking into Windows Phone and the company could come up with Redmond friendly devices of its own, joining the likes of HTC, Samsung, Nokia and LG.
Asus exec Benson Lin told the Wall Street Journal that Asus is “interested in making Windows phones” but he did not shed more light on the plans. It appears that Asus is interested in bringing its Padfone concept to the Windows world.
However, the Verge reckons that might not be as straightforward as it seems. Windows Phone can’t be used on 4- or 5-inch devices, and neither can Windows 8. But Microsoft is reportedly working on a new Windows variant that should cover more form factors and ensure more interoperability between Windows 8 and Windows Phone devices.
