ASUS to launch Android phone next year?

by: Darcy LaCouveeOctober 29, 2008

DigiTimes is reporting that Taiwanese manufacturer ASUS is planning to introduce its first Android powered smartphone in the first half of 2009. The report also says that it will likely sell the device under its own brand in Taiwan before selling re-branded versions in other parts of the world.

It should be noted that DigiTimes has a fairly poor track record when it comes to early news such as this, so it’s not exactly wise to consider the ASUS Android phone a done deal.

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard the ASUS name in association with Android, though.
