ASUS could be working on super-thin tablet

When you think of ASUS and tablets, what comes to mind? The Nexus 7? Maybe the PadFone? A hybrid model with a keyboard? It makes affordable tablets, and also unusual ones, but we really don’t think of it as a company known for super-thin tablets. A new rumor suggests that ASUS might be interested in expanding its offerings to fill that niche as well, and it could be developing a 6-millimeter-thick tablet.

The source behind this doesn’t seem to have much in the way of additional detail beyond that thickness measurement – there’s nothing specifically pointing to anything like display size just yet, and even the choice of operating system is unknown – this could be Android as easily as Windows 8.

We’re not at all sure how much faith we should put in this idea – this very well could be a lot of hot air – but if it’s true, ASUS might end up even under-cutting super-thin tablets like the 6.9-millimeter Xperia Tablet Z. For the time being, at least, we’ll believe it when we see it.
