It seems that ever since Google gave ASUS a taste of having a market leading tablet in the form of the ASUS Google Nexus 7, maybe even the New Nexus 7, they seem to have the sentimentality that all their products will succeed, that’s where the PadFone and FonePad series comes in, which hasn’t been doing all that well.
According to a roadmap shown off by ASUS at a recent conference in Taiwan, ASUS has quite a few new products up their sleeves, most of which is aimed directly at the US market. The first seems to be the ASUS PadFone Mini, a smaller version of the company’s strange phone-tablet duo. Second, is the ASUS MeMOFone HD 5, which is clearly set to be a smartphone with a 5-inch HD display, whether it be 1080p or 720p remains a mystery. Lastly, is the ASUS MeMO Pad HD 8, a slightly larger, and improved, version of the MeMO Pad HD 7, and likely the company’s offering to combat the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0.
It remains to be seen just how well the company will fair, but the slides clearly shows that the company wants sales larger that 1 million units, meaning the bar isn’t set very high.
