Besides the company has also set a target of reaching the top five slot in notebook, tablets and smartphone categories in the domestic market by 2015, ASUS India, Country Manager (System Business Group) and Regional Head-South Asia, Peter Chang said.

"Our plan is to be present comprehensively.. Right from the cabinet tower (Central Processing Unit of a personal computer) of a desktop to a smartphone. We have set a goal to achieve No 5 (rank) in tablet, smartphone and PC by 2015", he told reporters after unveiling three new smartphones under the brand ZenFone.

The Taiwan-based company has partnered with chip manufacturer Intel to offer Intel Atom dual-core processors in the smartphones which are priced at Rs 5,999, Rs 9,999 and Rs 16,999 respectively.
