ASUS may sell 2 million tablets this year

Taiwan-based PC and smartphone vendor Asustek is expected increase its tablet sales forecast for the full year to 2 million units. Taiwan Economic News reports that the increased estimates would follow strong Eee Pad Transformer demand, as well as Asustek general manager Kevin Lin’s recent comments that ASUS was the No. 2 tablet vendor in Taiwan last quarter. Despite some reports to the contrary, most agree that ASUS’s Eee Pad Transformer tablet has been a big hit for the vendor. The company’s first Honeycomb tablet sold out quickly at retail locations when it was released earlier this year, and high demand kept shipments up for several months. ASUS also recently unveiled its second convertible tablet, the Padfone, which is expected to launch later this year, combining a 10.1-inch tablet with a standalone 4.3-inch Android smartphone.
