A leaked PowerPoint file revealed more than just Asus’ third quarter earnings – it also opened up the door to the rest of the Taiwanese company’s strategy for their Eee Pad range. It seems that the Eee Pad Prime is more or less guaranteed to hit the markets this coming November 9th, with a couple more Android-powered slates being, er, slated for a Q1 2012 rollout to boot.
Asus does seem to be hedging their bets though by revealing that they have also thrown their hat into the ring with Windows 8 on the other hand, but it will still take a good one year or so before that happens. Guess it does not matter whether you are part of the Google or Microsoft camp – there is a little bit of something for you to look forward to, although those siding Mountain View will be able to get their hands on it sooner than a Windows 8 tablet.
I am not quite sure just what ‘hero products’ mean in the leaked slides, but it does sound like something huge, perhaps in the flagship level. What do you think? [Translated Page]
