Asustek was initiated into the Open Handset Alliance in December 2008 along with a few other handset manufacturers – the second generation of Android backers. Asustek chairman Jonney Shih recently told the Taiwanese media that his
company will lift the curtain on its first Android smartphone later this year.
This means that we are a few weeks away from the launch of another Android handset. Shih was addressing the media along with Asus president and CEO Jerry Shen, who said he expects demand for netbooks to remain steady in 2010.
Android and netbooks are not the only things keeping Asustek’s top brass occupied. Chairman Shih said that the company is mulling an entry into the green technology market.
