Asus has thoroughly established itself as the world’s wackiest manufacturer, the drunk uncle that turns up at the party with a device that’s half smartphone, half tablet, half netbook (you heard me).
Continuing in that vein, we’re told to brace for an Asus tablet that runs Android, Windows or both operating systems.
Engadget has seemingly been crawling around in the FCC’s dungeon, discovering what technically amounts to nine Asus tablets – three for each of the OS configurations. I guess we’re looking at storage – and possibly 3G/4G – variants there.
The Taiwanese have a propensity for unveiling tons of new stuff at CES in Las Vegas each January, so presumably we’ll learn more about these new Asus tablets next month.
