ASUS to bring out two Windows 8 tablets next fall

Along with its third-quarter financial results PDF), ASUS revealed it will begin shipping tablets running on the Windows 8 operating system in the summer of next year. Specifically, there are two tablets due to be released then, with a heavy marketing push taking place ahead of the release to ensure strong sales. ASUS currently relies on the Android OS for its current tablets, such as the Eee Pad Transformer.

The results have also confirmed that another Android-powered tablet, the Transformer Prime, will arrive on November 9. Early next year, in the winter, ASUS will release two more Android tablets. While it's not specifying what they will be, exactly, they are expected to be the Padfone hybrid and an updated Eee Pad Slider or perhaps an outright successor. [via NetbookNews]
