Computex 2016 predictions time!

Sure the tablet market is not booming, but we know (we hope at the very least) to see some new ZenPad tablets at the big Computex 2016 show. Nothing is more fun than making predictions only to find out that you’re wrong on most every prediction. However, failure will not make us refrain!

We do believe at this point, there will be a new ZenPad flagship, a next generation to the ZenPad S 8.0 series. Now we just aren’t sure whether the “S” will remain or if it’s going to be something different.

Prediction 1. There will be a new top end 8-inch tablet, a successor to the ZenPad S 8.0.

Now we love the ZenPad 10 for sure. It had the most impressive audio experience for watching movies and listening to music out of all the ZenPad tablets that we got our hands on. However, the ZenPad 10 is not at that premium level like the ZenPad S tablets are. So we do think that Asus is going to respond to the marketplace and come up with something more premium.

Prediction 2. There will be a 10-inch premium tablet along side the 8-inch model as mentioned in prediction #1.

Size wise, we most enjoyed the 7-inch ZenPad. We have been using the ZenPad C 7.0 (Z170) for a while and it’s great for taking on the go. It fits in pockets! The big bezel 7-inch form factor of years past means that people should revisit the 7-inch tablet size because it’s a bit easier to take with you than an 8-inch tablet.

Prediction 3. We are expecting to see a successor to the ZenPad C 7.0 tablet. A next generation of this tablet.

(we are thinking a bit more and will add a few more predictions just for fun)
