From Asus’s loins the netbook sprang, and now, they’re planning on turning that success into mobile phone shaped success. The chairman of Asus has confirmed that plans are afoot to bring a super-cheap smartphone to the market, which will act as a remote for other Asus hardware in the home.
There are very few details besides these, but we’d be disappointed if the phone wasn’t a plasticky white, have keys that are slightly too bouncy and a screen that’s only readable when you squint. Still, for the right price, we’d forgive it all that.[via Electric Pig]
