Asus will not be launching an Android netbook in 2009

No rumored release here, it turns out that Asus will not be launching an Android-powered netbook in 2009. According to a recent statement from Jerry Shen, the CEO of Asus they will be sticking with Windows because;

“Windows is what most consumers are used to,”

Yes, it seems that Windows, at least in the eyes of Asus is where it is at. Thankfully they have not abandoned plans to use other operating systems all together. In addition to the above statement, Jerry Shen also commented that they will see “more of an opportunity” to use other operating systems in the first quarter of next year.
