Asus Considering Windows Phone 8 Device

PC manufacturer Asus is considering to produce its own Windows Phone 8 smartphone, as well as incorporate its Padfone design into such a device should it come into fruition.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the Taiwanese company's VP Benson Linis said it's discussing a potential Windows Phone 8 licensing deal with Microsoft.

Lin also suggested that Asus was contemplating whether it should incorporate its Padfone design to the Windows Phone 8 platform. "With our Padfone concept, the phone plus tablet, I think it makes sense for Windows 8."

Asus isn't the only firm considering a Windows Phone 8 device. LG is said to be interested in producing multiple devices powered by Microsoft's mobile platform.
