Asus can make good phone. I think the cooperation with Google in N7 project has given Asus plenty experience with Android, JB in particlar. And with N7 Asus brand gets very warm reception too.

Asus fully rivals Apple in terms of design and innovation so I will be happy to see them in action. Just look at the Infinity Pad - it is the only real competitor for the iPad in the high-end spectrum. And the Nexus 7 is very cute too, actually. Also they were the first to offer a an attachable keyboard/stand/dock (if you do not count Smart Cover in) now many Android OEMs copy them.
I also like the vanilla Android expierience: fast updates and little lag. Touchwiz is hell compared to that, most likely the reason why I gave up on Android.
I hate TouchWiz. I had a Galaxy S2 with Gingerbread and TouchWiz and gave up on it after a few months. Too much inconsistency and TouchWiz in general was horrid, but it was being raved about online at the time and I wanted to give Android a go.
The S3's version of touchwiz did not change my opinion either, all those watery ripples and drip noises and such. Designed for humans indeed. More like, designed for fish :P if I ever got another Android device it would have to be a Nexus. The vanilla experience is definitely more appealing. Then again I do like the looks of Sense on HTC devices. It looks slick and very user friendly, but probably not so much on HTCs lower end devices.
I agree about the Nexus 7 design being cute. I would really like to buy one of those, and almost did, but I have held off only because of the Mini rumors. It just makes sense to buy products that fit within your invested ecosystem if possible (who wants to re-buy years worth of apps?).
Look forward to seeing what Asus have to offer anyway.

I HATE Touchwiz on my GS2. The Touchwiz UX seems better on the GS3, but I'm still on the fence about it. I've never really worked with a Nexus extensively, but it looks amazing compared to Touchwiz. The next Android I get will be a Nexus. I love how Asus keeps stock Android on their products. I'm not that into tablets, but if I do get one it will either be the Asus tablet/laptop Windows 8 hybrid or an Asus Infinity Pad.

Well, I was eagerly waiting for the PadFone to buy this year, but since it did not have the capability of 3G in my home network, I passed and settle for the SGS3 instead....
I have to say that even though the S3 is great, deep inside I still wanted the PadFone, but now that I know the next gen is coming a year from now, I think I will stay with the S3 till then.
Hopefully they iron out the little "issues" people have been complaining about. But I do believe in a Smartphone that can replace 90% of my notebook usage.
