Asustek Computer Inc (華碩) yesterday introduced new notebook computers, but not its promised new ZenFone 4 series, casting a cloud on the outlook for its smartphone business this year.

“We will host a product event for ZenFone 4 sometime in June,” Asustek chief financial officer and spokesman Nick Wu (吳長榮) told reporters after a pre-show news conference in Taipei, ahead of the opening of Computex Taipei today.

Asustek CEO Jerry Shen (沈振來) on May 11 said the company would introduce its latest ZenFone 4 series during the pre-show conference and would start shipping the new models next month at the earliest.

It was not the first time Asustek has delayed the introduction of its flagship ZenFone 4.    [FULL  STORY]
