ASUS Hypes Tablet News For Later This Week; New Devices?

ASUS has been coming out with some pretty interesting devices over the course of the past several months, from the first quad-core tablet with its Transformer Prime, to the unusual design of its new Padfone. We’re hoping that trend is set to continue, as the manufacturer has been teasing the announcement of what may be its next tablet design, set to be revealed at Computex 2012 on May 31.

One of the more recent rumors to deal with ASUS and its upcoming tablets concerns the possibility of working with Google to build a tablet for the company to call its own. Some of those claims have looked to such a device arriving as soon as June, so could that be what ASUS is planning to reveal? While that may still be in the cards, we have our doubts if that’s the announcement this latest teaser refers to. For one, we’d expect that news to come from Google, not ASUS, and this video also specifically mentions the “next transformations” from the company, implying that this will be a new tablet that fits right in to the existing Transformer lineup.

Considering all the talk NVIDIA has been making lately about super-cheap Tegra-3-based tablets, and the good relationship ASUS has with the company, maybe we’ll be hearing about just such a budget-priced model. In any case, we’ll know for sure in just a matter of days.
