Would an Asus PadFone with Windows Phone 8 make sense?
| by Roydon Cerejo |
The latest tech gossip from the Wall states that Taiwanese PC manufacturer Asus is in talks with Microsoft for developing a Windows Phone 8 device. Asus has had its share of experience with Android from handsets like the PadFone and the PadFone 2 and it seems it is exploring other platforms as well. Asus already has a long line of Windows 8 notebooks and hybrids, so attempting a phone with the same OS is not a very far-fetched idea. Considering the fact that mobile phone shipments rose by 45 percent last year while PC adoption was down 3.2 percent, it makes sense for the company to tap into the mobile space and having devices on multiple platforms gives better market penetration as well.

We’ve already established that the Lumia 720 is Nokia’s best effort as far as Windows Phone 8 handsets go. This could soon change once the Lumia 925 hits markets, but as it stands now, the Lumia 720 offers the best blend of features and performance, wrapped in a beautiful package that’s quite affordable.
