Looks like Asus is hopping aboard the Android train with a handset planned for the first half of 2009 in Taiwan. No word yet on if they’ll be offering two dozen different models, but expectations are that they’ll be building and offering Android phones for overseas clients. Expect an Asustek branded unit to hit first and then we’ll see the clone wars begin under other brands.
Although Asus wasn’t what I’d call a big player in the Windows Mobile space, they do have a few handsets on that platform. It’s going to be interesting to watch traditional WinMo handset makers and see how many take a multi-platform approach like HTC and Asus are doing.
