Spend a little time in the technology industry and you'll begin to dread December. It's the time when everyone and their grandmother's PR agent invites you to go to an off-floor presentation in Las Vegas to talk about the latest advances in iPhone accessories. ASUS isn't quite that bad, but their CES teaser is a little strange nonetheless. I'm going to assume that the Statue of Liberty in the following promotional video is the one from the New York, New York casino.

The "green or blue" imagery is an unmistakable indication of a combination Android and Windows device, which isn't necessarily new in the ASUS lineup - consider both the Transformer Book Trio and the oddball Transformer AiO (all in one). Since Lady Liberty is waving around what looks like a tablet, I'm going to assume that this particular device is more like the current Windows 8/RT and Android tablets than that strange desktop-tablet combination. Then again, she's 300 feet tall, meaning that tablet is at least 30 or 40 feet across. Maybe ASUS is preparing an Android and Windows-powered big screen TV for the billionaire set.

CES starts on January 7th, and the ASUS presentation wherein this mystery device will be revealed is taking place the day before. Of course we'll be bringing you the details.

    Peace between green and blue sounds more like Ingress than MSvAndroid

    Asus needs to change its design language.. Brushed aluminum with concentric circles is getting old now.. Not that its bad.. Little change would be nice.. Considering DAT BEZEL on all its recent tablets

    • Elislurry

      That bezel is necessary on any Transformer device, otherwise the keyboard would be too small to be usable or the dock would be bigger than the device and would look ridiculous.

        Or they just increase the screen size while keeping the same tablet size. You can easily fit a 11 inch display into most of their 10 inch tablets.

      They changed it on one of the padfones to small diamond shapes. Very subtle but quite nice

  • Jon

    If this is taking place in Vegas could someone please explain to me what does the Statue of Liberty symbolize in this teaser? I don't get it.

    • Marcell Lévai

      Windows and Android can be next to each other in harmony I guess.

    • symbolset

      Las Vegas has a "New York, New York" hotel and casino. It has a replica of the Statue of Liberty.

  • symbolset

    PC OEMs need to make devices that sell, and that means Android. They really want to take the Microsoft co-marketing money they became addicted to on PCs, and that means Windows. So mix them together? No.

    We are not buying Windows devices because we don't want them. Don't try to drag the pustulent decaying corpse of the old world into our clean new world.
