ASUS to detail cloud service at Computex?

ASUS Chairman Jonney Shih recently spoke at Business Next in Taiwan about the future of computers and technology. The talk, embedded as a video below thanks to NetbookNews, included talk of the social, location, and mobile experience in future products, though it especially contained an announcement about a cloud service due from the company. Shih said ASUS will unveil its "total solution for the ubiquitous cloud computing at Computex this year."

This would involve a cloud service that would let users access all their multimedia content and documents from any of their web-connected devices, including PCs, smartphones, and tablets. From the sounds of it, the service will be the equivalent of Apple's iCloud, but for Windows-powered computers. ASUS already offers some basic cloud services pre-installed on its notebooks, such as the UX31.

The Computex Taipei show is scheduled for June 5-9.
