Asus Set to Enter Chromebook Market

asus_chromebook_01-300x300Taiwanese multinational Asus plans to build a Chromebook in the second half of 2013.

As there is a noticeable decline in Windows-based PC production, Asus hopes to capitalize on the Chromebook momentum.

Asus CEO Jerry Shen said: “Chromebook is good, not on the consumer side, but it’s good in the education and government side, and some for the commercial side.”

In the first quarter of 2013, Asus shipped 3 million Android tablets, a significant hike from the 600,000 units shipped during the same quarter last year. The PC-maker has successfully teamed with Google on the Nexus 7 tablet, which entered production in May 2012 and is priced at $199.
