Asus Not Interest to Make Gadget with Windows Phone
In the mobile devices business, the Asus is currently concentrated on Android. However, Asus will be open to all vendors of operating systems, not to mention Windows Phone. Asus Mobile Devices Division head, said Benson Lin, ASUS will join the Windows Phone ecosystem, but not now.
“We are very close to Microsoft. When we think the time has come, of course we will do it,” Lin said to the tech site Pocket-Lint at the Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona, Spain, the end of February.
He did not answer when it is appropriate to adopt the Windows Phone. Perhaps, because the world is not made “fever” by Windows Phone, then Asus has not determined when it is.
“When the time comes we’ll do it,” he added.
Lin himself was one of the users of Windows Phone, now he uses the HTC Titan. In addition to Windows Phone, it also uses Android smartphone from vendor competitor, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
“I always carry two competitors in my pocket,” said Lin.
Taiwanese vendors are actually never made a smartphone based on Windows Phone in 2010. Unfortunately, the smartphone has never been marketed widely and only released as a preview device for application developers.
