Asus reconsidering their WP7 position

asus_logoForbes 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 hasn’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. “The operator voice will be the key factor to think of in our Windows Phone 7 strategy,” 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.
