Benson Lin, president of Asustek’s handheld device business unit said that the first thing made will be an Android-powered smartphone, followed by four or five new Windows Mobile or Android phones in 2010.
The products are expected to sell a million units, Lin added.
In addition to the Android handset, Asustek will also show off its new Windows Mobile 6.5.3-based smartphone, the M10. The M10 is based on a Qualcomm 7224 600MHz processor and equipped with a 3.5-inch WVGA resistive touch panel and a 5-megapixel camera plus GPS functionality.
The M10 will hit the shops in early February with a suggested retail price of $434.4.
The glorious alliance is flat out designing shiny objects for the Chinese market. It plans its first TD-SCDMA handset for the China market by the end of the year.
