Update: Detta123 has pointed out in the comments that this is likely just an optical drive. Hopes dashed.
And we have no idea what it might be. Could it be the ASUS Qube? Or a high-end Chromebook? Or something less exciting for Google fans, like a router?
ASUS is giving no hints. We'll know tomorrow, but fill the comments with your best guesses.
It's the all-spark cube
Hm...I wonder if I can hook this thing up to my Nexus 7? :-)
ASUS officially said it on its Google+ account it is just a drive
World's slimmest DVD Writer. Crap, i thought it was going to be something cool.
It's a brushed aluminum mouse pad.
Introducing the new ASUS Transformer Microwave!
ASUS have produced some nice kit in the past two years. So I'm listening.
Maybe it's one of them new fangled record players I've been hearing so much about. I hear this one plays in 78 rpms! Yes siree, that's technology!
Love it. First smile of the day. Its 2.08 here.
Its a $700 hot plate?
Aaaaannnnddd.... we've officially started moving backwards. A portable DVD drive hrmph!
Hopefully is a console running jelly bean which could still beat Ouya to the punch. But, do we even know if it has android?
Gramophone with touchscreen :D
It is, without a doubt, the continuum transfunctioner.
Laserdisc player. :P
This is obviously a cube for google tv or even a gaming console like the ouya?
If you look closely there are little rubber feet on the bottom of it so it doesn't slide off whatever surface so it's got to be a cube facing it from the front.
EDIT:Or it can be what the guy above be said right before he ninja posted me lol.
It isn't a Chromebook. Its the Varidrive.
Killjoy .. You stole Jerry's thunder.. LOL
I wish it was a Chromebook. lol
you won i think... it's exactly the same size and layout.
Yup. You guys; don't thank me. You can thank Google Image Search! :) Just uploaded the image and added ASUS. It found the image quickly. lol
And... we have a winner!
You sure? The feet on the device above doesn't match the image on the ASUS site you linked.
Plus, I don't think ASUS would be teasing the device in this manor for something that is already listed on their site.
You do have a point. Just the first thing that popped into my mind. Varidrive. lol
The thing pictured above looks to have feet though, which the Varidrive doesn't have. Another inconsistency with the two objects: This thing appears to be standing straight upright, which the Varidrive does not do (it leans back when in the upward position.)
