Short History of Asus



Short History of Asus

ASUSTeK Computer Inc. usually referred to as ASUS, is a Taiwanese multinational computer hardware and electronics company headquartered in Beitou District, Taipei, Taiwan. Its products include desktops, laptops, netbooks, LED/LCD panels, mobile phones, networking equipment, monitors, motherboards, graphics cards, optical storage, multimedia products, servers, workstations, and tablet PCs. The company's slogan/tagline was "Inspiring Innovation. Persistent Perfection." and is currently "In Search of Incredible."

ASUS was founded in Taipei in 1989 by T.H. Tung, Ted Hsu, Wayne Hsieh and M.T. Liao,[10] all four having previously worked at Acer as computer engineers.

In September 2005 ASUS released the first PhysX accelerator card.

On 9 March 2006 ASUS was confirmed as one of the manufacturers of the first Microsoft Origami models, together with Samsung and Founder Technology.

On 9 December 2008, the Open Handset Alliance announced that ASUS had become one of 14 new members of the organization. These "new members will either deploy compatible Android devices, contribute significant code to the Android Open Source Project, or support the ecosystem through products and services that will accelerate the availability of Android-based devices."

On 1 June 2010, ASUS spun off Pegatron Corp. In October 2010, ASUS and Garmin announced that they would be ending their smartphone partnership as a result of Garmin deciding to exit the product category. The two companies had produced six Garmin-ASUS branded smartphones over the prior two years.

In December 2010, ASUS launched the world's thinnest notebook, the ASUS U36, with Intel processor voltage standard (not low voltage) Intel core i3 or i5 with a thickness of only 19 mm.

In January 2013, ASUS officially ended production of its Eee PC series due to declining sales caused by consumers increasingly switching to tablets and Ultrabooks.
