Yulon Nissan, a joint venture between Taiwan's Yulon Group and the Japan-based Nissan Motor, plans to buy over 1,200 units of Asustek's Eee Pad Transformer Prime tablet for each of its service-to-home salespersons, officials from the car dealership said.
The 10.1-inch Android device, featuring a fast quad-core processor from Nvidia Corp., is expected to quicken the process of car sales and improve salespersons' efficiency, the officials added.
In June, Asustek revised down its second-quarter revenue growth forecast to zero to 5 percent from the 5 to 10 percent it had previously forecast, due to a production delay in its Nexus 7, a co-branded tablet with Google Inc.
Analysts said the change suggested that the production of about 350,000 Nexus 7 tablets was pushed from the second quarter to the third, although Asustek's full-year tablet shipments would remain unchanged at 3.5 million units.
