New ASUS Transformer tablet hinted in teaser video?
Is ASUS about to unveil a new member of its Transformer lineup of tablets? It seems like it, judging by this short teaser video that was posted on YouTube today. For a brief moment (at the 0:23 mark) we are treated to what look like the outlines of a Transformer-like device, with a tablet and a keyboard that it is meant to attach to, but that could be just an interpretation sparked by our geeky imagination. However, the narrator invites the viewer to join ASUS as it introduces "the truly incredible next transformations", so chances of seeing a new tablet/netbook hybrid seem pretty high. And if that is not enough, we have a hint pointing at heavy focus on cloud-based services.

Needless to say, we are excited to see what ASUS has for us. Thankfully, we will be enlightened in only a few short days – on May 31, to be more specific. In the meantime, we would not be surprised if more of these teasers pop-up online.

13" Core i5 Running on Windows 8 please! Be a little thicker. I don't care, finally I can get a true portable laptop transforming tablet. Asus Zenbook Transformaaah, I'd waste money on you!

They unveiled the PadFone at last year's Computex, and it took them a year to finally launch that. I agree though, ASUS has been focusing entirely on Android lately, like in the TF300 that I just won from PhoneArena's giveaway! ...sorry, I had to gloat about it sooner or later, feel free to vote me down... out of ENVY! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! ...again, sorry...

I envy you man, but instead of down, a thumb's up is what you deserve! :))

But seriously, ASUS will focus on android. Given the fact that google and asus are collaborating for a new budget tab.

I'm hoping for an announcement of the Nexus tablet. Another great Transformer tablet by ASUS will still be a great announcement.
