Asus Teases Transformer Technology in Video for Computex 2012
Asus releases a somewhat overproduced teaser video promising products (or technology) from its Transformer line of products.Computer maker Asus has released a YouTube teaser video for its Transformer family of products, though the video offers few hints as to what sort of Transformer offerings it is preparing us for, save for a vague reference to the shape of the cloud, which the video describes as ever-changing beyond time and boundaries." This has led to some speculation that the company is preparing to launch a cloud-based storage or file syncing service during the Computex 2012 conference in Taipei. The video may also be related to new hardware in the companys Transformer line of Android-based tablets, or perhaps a Transformer tablet running Microsofts Windows 8 operating system. At the end of the video, which half-mimics the music and visuals of a Hollywood blockbusters teaser trailer (complete with a gravelly voiced narrator), Asus suggests further announcements will be made on May 31, in advance of the conference, which runs from June 5-9. Three additional videos are in the works, judging by a landing page for the video on Techinstyle.tv.
While the company is playing coy at the moment, Asus has yet to reveal release dates for its Eee Pad Transformer Infinity, first shown back in February at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) convention in Barcelona, or the PadFone, an Android device that snaps inside a PadFone Station tablet, also first shown at MWC. The next three videos may give viewers a bigger clue as to what Asus is up to.
