In the world of technology ASUS have always had a massive presence – particularly in the enthusiast sector where we conduct most of our work – ASUS make some of the best motherboards, graphics cards, audio equipment, notebooks and so on. Yet the technology market is changing and has been changing for a while, tablets and smartphones now reign supreme. ASUS has been quick to act on that and already has a well established and extensive range of tablets which Digitimes claims has driven ASUSTeK’s best monthly revenues for 13 months. September 2013 represented a 2.97% increase in revenues on the previous month and a 13.05% increase over the previous year – impressive figures from ASUS. The indication is that this growth has mainly been driver by “booming shipments” of the Google ASUS second generation Nexus 7 tablet as well as sales of own brand tablets like the ASUS MemoPad HD 7 pictured above. Digitimes’ sources state that ASUSTeK wil ship 4.3 to 4.5 million notebooks for Q3 of 2013 and 7 to 8 million tablets for H2 of 2013.
