It’s no secret that tablet sales are booming, but there are still surprises here and there, such as Asustek Computer’s Q3 earnings of 229.1 million, up 43% from the same period in the previous year. According to the Wall Street Journal, research firm Gartner is pointing to the Asus Nexus 7 tablet and similar devices as being key growth drivers.

Asus Nexus 7 Tablet

The Asus Nexus 7 is a Google Android Jelly Bean-based tablet that has impressive specs, including a quad-core processor, a high-end 7-inch IPS multitouch display, and a thin, light body.


Asus is also doing well with notebooks, something many companies are struggling with right now. The pc maker shipped five million notebooks in the third quarter and expects to ship 5.5 million more by the end of 2012. Asus also recently scored a deal with AT&T to sell its new Windows 8 Vivo Tab RT (our review is here), and analysts are pointing to its low prices on Windows 8 products as an indicator of strong sales to come.

It's great they're doing well. I've read that they use the same factories Microsoft does to make their products.

Of course, it's hard to imagine them not doing well when they pay 65 cents an hour and have 15-hour workdays.
