Asus CEO Jerry Shen said the company wants its own line of tablets to be more popular than the new Nexus 7, which it produced this year in partnership with Google.
"The goal is our own branded tablet volume will be bigger than the Nexus 7 volume," Shen said. "After a six month effort, I believe in Q3 our own branded products will achieve more than 50 percent of our total tablets."
The company is focusing its efforts squarely on tablets as the popularity of PCs continues to wane.
And it might have another product up its sleeve not mentioned during the Friday announcements.
Asus -- not Samsung -- may be in line to manufacture the next iteration of the Nexus 10.
The rumor about the largest of Google's three Nexus devices broke Friday morning, the Verge reports.
The original Nexus 10, manufactured by Samsung, is due for a refresh - and Asus may be its maker. The company was already tapped by Google to build the new Nexus 7 device, launched late last month.
Rumor has it that the new Nexus 10 could be available online via the Google Play store and on retail shelves at Best Buy stores by the holiday season.
