I am glad to see a quality company like Asus getting out of the blocks and making profit...i was a little worried about them.
And of course once you join forces with the Nexus you are automatically on the winning team :)

If only HTC made the same move a few years back. I remember reading an article wherein an HTC executive said they won't be making low-priced products because they will lose brand value. Asus did just that and ended up strengthening their reputation.

Asus is smart and in business brand reputation comes from deliveering quality in all aspects. Quality does not mean an over-priced product made with premium materials but an optimally satisfying product at an optimum price. Asus did just that and now they're reaping the rewards.
This should also give a push to their other mobile products like the Padfone 2 which by the way happens to be a qquality device as well for an entirely another segment

Actually, for me, the King of Android Tabs was the ASUS TF700 (until the Nexus 10 comes out). Then they made the Nexus 7 and that was also the best in it's class. ASUS is a great hardware company and I also like their UI :)

No surprise to me.
Asus cleary makes solid Android tablets with very few issues and has top rated support. Them not being a big household name such as Samsung or Sony is probably the reason they aren't farther ahead then they should be.
