ASUS Announces Fonepad Note FHD 6 Sporting A Stylus, But Probably Not Bound For The US

Asus really went big with announcements at Computex this year, naming 11 new products in about 30 minutes. One of the really interesting devices to make the cut was the Fonepad Note FHD 6, a smaller cousin to the 7-inch model announced earlier this year at MWC. In many ways, the super-sized phone blends qualities from other popular devices like the HTC One's front-facing speakers and a smart stylus from the Galaxy Note.

ASUS Announces 1080p, Intel-Powered MeMO Pad FHD 10 And Budget-Focused MeMO Pad HD 7 Tablets

You think it's over? It's not over until ASUS says it is. And in addition to a handful of other hardware announcements at Computex, they've pulled the wraps off of a pair of more standard tablets in their MeMO line. The 10-inch MeMO Pad FHD (for "Full HD," we presume) is the more interesting of the two, thanks to its 1920x1080 screen IPS screen and unconventional Intel Atom processor. The MeMO Pad HD 7 is a slight refresh of the original, budget-friendly MeMO Pad, this time with a high-res screen and a quad-core processor.

ASUS Announces New Transformer Pad Infinity With Tegra 4 And 2560x1600 Display

Watch out, Transformer fans, ASUS is about to give you something pretty great to drool over. As part of its Computex 2013 announcement, the OEM gave away details of the shiny new replacement to the once reigning king of Android tablets, the Transformer Pad Infinity.

Virtually every spec will see a significant improvement as part of the refresh, owing quite a bit to the equipped Tegra 4 system-on-a-chip. Most notably, the display resolution will rival Samsung's current leader, the Nexus 10, at 2560 x 1600.

ASUS Unveils Dual-CPU (i7 Haswell/Atom), Dual-OS (Windows 8/Android), Dual-Storage (1TB+64GB) 11.6" Transformer Book Trio

Today at Computex 2013, ASUS' Chairman Jonney Shih gave birth to no less than 11 products in a span of less than an hour, a surprising rate of fire we're not used to even at flagship events like MWC or CES, let alone Computex. Not bad at all, ASUS.

Undoubtedly, the most interesting and important announcement was the Transformer Book Trio, "the world’s first three-in-one mobile device." The Trio actually consists of two pieces:

  1. An 11.6" tablet with a 1920x1080 IPS display and 64GB of internal storage onboard, powered by a mobile-friendly 2GHz dual-core Intel Atom Z2580 chip (32nm Clover Trail+).

ASUS Currently Pushing Android 4.2.1 To The Transformer AiO

The ASUS Transformer AiO is a strange sort of beast – it's half desktop computer, half massive Android tablet. Here's the thing, though: it's surprisingly cool. I've been using one for the last week or so (review coming soon), and have been extremely surprised at the amount of utility I've found in this mix-n-match device, as well as how well thought-out it is. But I'm getting ahead of myself here – you'll have to wait for the review for the full skinny.

ASUS CUBE Review: Doesn't Fix What Is Broken (That Being Google TV)

Announced at CES this year, the ASUS Cube has managed to get a decent amount of attention for a Google TV Box. Formerly known as the Qube, this angular, textured device came to market toward the end of last month, and I've been living with it ever since, trying to get a feel for the product and decide whether ASUS has something special on their hands.

In reviewing the Cube I wanted to answer two main questions that I think underlie every GTV device: Is the user experience a good one, and does the product successfully make Google TV something I actually want to use on a daily basis?

[New App] GTVHacker Releases Asus Cube Google TV Root App On The Play Store: Roots, Patches, Modifies Flash Player

The fine folks at GTVHacker dropped us a line to say that their new Asus Cube root solution is now available as a free download in the Google Play Store. The cleverly-titled CubeRoot takes advantage of a Unix NFS mounting exploit to install the SuperSU application and grant Cube owners root privileges, sure to be much appreciated by Google TV power users excited for Asus' new hardware. You can pick up the root application from the Play Store widget below, or download it directly from GTVHacker's website.

ASUS Teases Computex 2013 Announcement, Doesn't Really Tell Us Anything

Looks like ASUS has something up its sleeve for Computex this year, as it just released a rather uninformative teaser for the event. Of course, teasers are supposed to be pretty uninformative, so I guess this one is doing its job.

Throughout the video we get brief glimpses of past ASUS products, along with what could be some upcoming products. The most notable image in the bunch comes close to the end of the video, with what appears to to be a new stylus-sporting tablet:

Of course, there's no indication that any of this is Android-related; given ASUS' past dedication to the OS, however, it's unlikely that we won't see at least one new gadget with our favorite open source OS running on it.
