Asus offsets shrinking notebook market with 3 million tablet sales
It's not a secret that the notebook and PC markets aren't in their best condition yet, so what are manufacturers doing in order to offset their uninspiring performances on those markets? Well, they sell tablets, that's what they do! At least, that's the solution that worked for Asus, which is one of the leading players in the PC industry.

Leading player or not, though, Asus has seen a drop in sales in the laptop and PC categories, so good thing it also sold those 3 million tablets in order to keep investors happy. Asus has made a $202 million profit on a revenue of $3.5 billion, which is up 5.8% compared to the company's previous fiscal quarter. On top of that, Asus is continuing its successful penetration in the US market, as the US now accounts for 23% of the company's sales, which is up 6% year-on-year.

I bet thanks to the nexus 7! ;-) Love it, and hope that the next nex7 will be manufactured by Asus as well.

Except tf101 (and maybe tf300T also), the rest of transformers are garbage.
However, I'm also expecting a good W8 transformer tablet with a good price also. Vivo tab is so overprice

tf300T is kinda fail, horrible wifi, and really slow ram. Web browsing is horrible since its waiting on that ram all the time.

Size and keyboard they did get right tho.
