Forbes blogger Elizabeth Woyke has interviewed Asus corporate VP and manager of mobile devices unit Benson Lin, with a focus on whether the manufacturer would be returning to the Windows Phone 7 fold. The upshot is: "maybe."
Asus is still assessing Windows Phone 7. Lin says the company hasnâ€™t yet decided how to proceed. He intends to spend the next several days at Mobile World Congress meeting with operators and gauging their interest in an Asus Windows Phone 7 device. â€œThe operator voice will be the key factor to think of in our Windows Phone 7 strategy,â€ says Lin.
The post includes a decent potted history of Asus’ early involvement in WP7 and eventual backing out. You can read the whole thing at Forbes here.
