Asustek Computer aims to double its tablet computer shipments to the United States
this year with its low-cost ZenPad range, which went on sale Tuesday in Taiwan.
The Taiwanese PC maker has teamed up since April this year with AT&T, the second-largest US wireless carrier, to sell the MeMO Pad tablet, said Asustek vice president Samson Hu.
To make a further push into the US, an 8-inch flagship model and a 7-inch entry-level model in Asustek’s ZenPad series will go on sale later this month through US retailer Best Buy, Hu told the press at the Taiwan launch of the ZenPad range.
With the expanding distribution channels, Asustek aims to double its US tablet shipments from 1 million units last year to 2 million units this year, Hu said, adding that his company has gained more confidence in the US market with its “refreshed” strategy. [FULL STORY]
