The Android tablet market has been under incredible strain as it is and things don’t seem to be improving. It has been in a state of constant decline. ASUS has reportedly taken stock of the situation and decided to exit the Android tablet market completely. The company is said to have informed its distribution channels that no new ASUS Android-powered tablets will be launched going forward.
CNBeta reports that ASUS has let its distribution channels know that it’s no longer going to launch any new Android tablets. The company is believed to have taken this decision to divert the additional development and marketing resources to its flagship ZenFone smartphone series in addition to its Republic of Gamers phone lineup.
The ASUS ZenPad 8 was the last tablet that this company made and it’s reportedly sold out already. This shows that the company isn’t even making additional units of that device and has now run out of supplies to send to its distribution channels. This change should bring about a renewed focus from ASUS on smartphones, which face their own troubles in a highly competitive market.
ASUS hasn’t officially commented on the report as yet but it’s not too difficult to believe that the company would make this decision.
