ASUS Will Retire From the Tablet Market, as ZenPads Get Canned

By James A.

ASUS is preparing to fully retire from the tablet market, as the ZenPad series just got canned. It seems there will be no future iterations of the device, if sources close to the company are to be believed. Turns out that Android tablets can’t compete with the iPads, that’s the reason for this decision.

ASUS was a major player in the tablet field in 2012-2014 and it had some courageous experiments. They had the Transformer tablet series, the EEE Slide, the PadFone, the FonePad and many more. This means that the ZenPad series is gone and the ZenPad 8 is one of the last models ever. It’s the ZN380KNL model, aka ZenPad, which is listed as sold out now.

Instead of this segment, the company will focus on the ZenFone series and the ROG e-sports market. The second gen ASUS ROG Phone is definitely in the cards, plus the ZenFone 6z in the future. Aside from the iPads, large screen smartphones have spelled doom for the slates. The remaining Android tablets struggle and matter only when they have very low prices.

In order to do that they compromise in CPU power and sometimes build quality. Xiaomi and Huawei, maybe also Samsung remain actively involved in the tablet battle. Let’s not forget Amazon and Lenovo too, but the first one probably sells the devices at a loss and Lenovo experiments with a ton of convertible formats anyway.

The ASUS retirement, means there’s a new slot for a player to ascend. Who will it be?

CES 2019: ASUS ROG Mothership is a Huge Gaming Tablet, With 17.3 Inch Screen, RTX 2080 Graphics

By James A.

ASUS obviously brought ROG products to CES 2019, but not the kind you’d expect. They showcased an amazing new tablet, that sounds better endowed than your average gaming laptop. It’s called ASUS ROG Mothership.

The ASUS ROG Mothership packs a 17.3 inch display with a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, but it’s no regular screen. It’s got an IPS LCD panel with 144 Hz refresh rate. Inside the slate we find an Intel Core i9-8950K processor, as well as the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 graphics and support for up to 64 GB of RAM. There’s also 3 PCIe NVMe SSDs in the mix and two 280W charging ports.

The behemoth weighs 10.3 pounds, which is definitely not predisposed to shifting around. It’s heavier than most laptops to be honest. The ROG Mothership comes with a built in kickstand, which turns the tablet into sort of a fixed monitor. There’s also a detachable keyboard and built in battery. By the way the keyboard has cool lighting and it can fold in half when not being attached, for easier transport.

 

Not all specs were unveiled, but we do know there’s also a 4K version, plus the promise of WiFi ax and 2.5G Ethernet. It measures 29.9 mm in thickness and the keyboard can hook up wirelessly or wired. I think we’d rather call this a sort of portable gaming All in One PC, rather than a tablet…

CES 2019: ASUS Debuts First Chrome OS Tablet, 3 Chromebooks, Part of Education Series

By Radu Iorga

Many companies have started unveiling their products early, ahead of CES 2019. LG is one of them, Samsung and Archos too, but ASUS is also bringing forth new tablets and laptops. They’ve just come up with their very first Chrome OS tablet and also 3 new Chromebooks.

The products are part of the Education series, that now includes the very first Chrome OS based tablet from ASUS, as well as two clamshell laptops and a 14 inch Chromebook Flip convertible. Sadly we have no prices for the newcomers, but we do know that they’ll be available soon. The full configurations, pricing and availability will be unveiled later.

What we do know is that the ASUS Chromebook Education series gets the new model Chromebook C204, the Chromebook C403 and Chromebook Flip C214 convertible. There’s also the Chromebook Tablet CT100, which sounds like a counter intuitive name. These products have increased durability, spill resilient keyboards and rubber bumpers for pupils.

 

ASUS Chromebook Tablet CT100

ASUS Chromebook Tablet CT100 packs a 9.7 inch display and uses a hexa core OP1 (Rockchip RK3399) processor. Also on board are 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, as well as a 35 Whr Li-Po battery, promoted as good enough for a full day of school use. The charging port is an USB Type-C one and the device can survive drops from up to 3 feet. There’s Mali T864 graphics here, a 5 MP back camera and a 2 MP front shooter.

Bluetooth 4.1, WiFi ac and a microSD card slot all make the cut, inside a 1.3 pound product. Expect to learn the price at CES 2019 and for it to be low.

ASUS Chromebook C204

ASUS Chromebook C204 is a clamshell laptop with a 11.6 inch HD display, Intel Celeron N4000 CPU and 4 GB of RAM. It has two USB Type-C ports and a regular USB Type-A 3.1 port too. It provides Wacom EMR pen support, a 720p front camera and 3 USB ports, two Type-C, two Type-A. It weighs 2.6 pounds and has a 50 Wh battery.

ASUS Chromebook C214

ASUS Chromebook C214 is more of a rotating convertible, with a 11.6 inch screen, that offers a 1366 x 768 pixel resolution. There’s a 360 degree hinge here, Wacom EMR pen support and Intel Celeron N4000 or N4100 options. RAM goes up to 8 GB and storage up to 64 GB of the eMMC 5.1 variety. There’s a 5 or 8 MP back camera and front 720p shooter. MicroSD, USB Type-C ports (two of them) and a 45 Wh battery are here.

ASUS C403 Chromebook

The biggest of the bunch is the new ASUS C403 Chromebook, with a 14 inch 1366 x 768 pixel display, EMR Wacom pen support and Intel Celeron N3350 CPU. There’s 4 GB of RAM inside, 32 GB of storage, a HD webcam and microSD. Once again a 45 Wh battery appears and two USB Type-C ports and two USB Type-A too. All of them within a 3.7 pound package

ASUS Prepping First Chrome OS Tablet, Launching at CES 2019 With New Chromebooks

By Radu Iorga

Over the past weeks we’ve seen some ASUS-related leaks, but those involved ZenFone 6 prototypes, rather than tablets or laptops. Today we also uncover some extra details about potential future slates and laptops from the company.

ASUS has been fond of Chrome OS for a while now, expanding its lineup of Chromebooks steadily. Now it’s ready to also debut a Chrome OS tablet, which may arrive at CES 2019, according to sources. It won’t come alone, but rather accompanied by a few Chromebooks. We’ve seen Acer debuting the first Chrome OS tablet a while ago, followed by Google itself with its own Pixel Slate.

Sadly aside from the mentions of Roland Quandt, we have no idea of what to expect from the new ASUS products. What’s certain is that it’ll be at least 10 inches in diagonal and it’ll come at CES 2019. It’s expected to fight the Acer Chromebook Tab 10 on equal turf. One may expect this device to be tailored more for consumers and less for the education segment, like the Acer model did.

As far as the future ASUS Chromebooks are concerned, we keep hearing about Snapdragon CPUs getting put on such devices and this may well happen here. The battery life would be stunning and seeing how ASUS already has a close relationship to Qualcomm (ROG Phone highest clocked S845 and the Qualcomm boss always appears on stage during ZenFone events), you may see a move in that direction.

Not to mention that ASUS was the launch partner for Windows 10S Snapdragon devices. For now all we know is that the new ASUS Chromebooks are codenamed C434TA and C403.
