ASUS has been teasing its upcoming smartwatch, the ZenWatch, for the past couple of weeks, but we should finally see it unveiled this week during IFA. Speaking with press recently, ASUS’ CEO Jerry Shen, claims the device will go on sale globally starting in October, priced somewhere below $199.
It is officially the week of teases, as ASUS continues the trend, this time revealing an official name for its upcoming smartwatch, the ZenWatch. In a brief 30+ second teaser video, ASUS shows off a bit of the watch’s design and overall profile, but we still have yet to see the watch’s face turned on. (more…)
Not to be outdone by Motorola and LG, Asus is continuing to tease its first foray into the wearable market. Ahead of its September 3 unveiling at IFA in Berlin, Asus on Facebook this morning posted two images of its prototypical smartwatch, a sort of rectangular device with rounded edges and what looks to be an interchangeable wristband.

With ASUS taking to Twitter and teasing an upcoming announcement with the quote, “Time has been transformed and we have changed,” first spoken by Khalil Gibran, it won’t be any surprise when the company unveils its Android Wear-powered smartwatch on September 3 at an IFA event in Berlin, Germany.

Shen mentioned to investors that once announced, ASUS will followup the smartwatch with aggressive marketing efforts, but should not expect to see great revenue returns on the device or sequel device for roughly nine months. (more…)
AT&T and Asus gave the Padfone X a release date today, only about six months after it was first introduced to the world. Originally announced back at CES in January, the Padfone X has been teased and mentioned by AT&T for weeks, but only now do we know how much it will cost and when it can be bought.
June 6 is the day. For $199 on 2-year contract or as low as $22.92 per month with AT&T Next. (more…)
From what we see in a new promo video for the ASUS Padfone X on AT&T, both companies look to have taken a page out of Samsung’s commercial playbook. In this corny, yet adorable commercial, a gentleman is at a park, where he happens upon a pretty girl and her dog.
The man mouths, “Oh, is that your dog?” She replies, “Yeah.” From here, he lays down the smooth line, “Oh, let me show you my dog!” After showing her one picture on his Padfone X, he decides it would better to bring out his full Padfone tablet station, allowing her to see even larger pictures of dogs. So romantic. (more…)
Ever since the PadFone X from ASUS was announced at CES this year, we have been patiently waiting to learn more about the device. We know that it will be on AT&T, that it will have LTE Advanced, feature HD Voice and VoLTE, but that was about it.
