ASUS has something for everyone in their upcoming product line

ASUS has just announced six new Android-based products, and there's something here for everyone. With new Fonepads, MeMO pad budget tablets, a hot new Transformer and the new Transformer Book Win 8/Android convertible, there's a lot to cover in this small space. 

There's no official word on pricing or availability on any of these just yet, but when we get more information you'll find it right here on the blog.

We've got it broken down, and the handful of press pictures for everyone to look through after the break.
