We mentioned in our Mobile World Congress preview that Asus would be making its presence felt in Barcelona next week, and the company has now posted a teaser video to reinforce that sentiment. Clocking in at 17 seconds, the brief clip doesn't spoil much of anything. What it does seem to indicate is a focus on increased resolution and/or pixel density. The spot features a wooden box containing a number of colored balls that quickly multiply into a much denser group, in turn presenting a more detailed look at what ultimately appears to be an Android tablet homescreen of some sort. With Apple expected to soon take the wraps off an iPad 3 complete with "Retina" 2048 x 1536 resolution, it would seem Asus is also set to make display quality a top priority going forward.
What product this teaser could be referencing is more of a toss up. One possibility is the upcoming TF700 variant of its Transformer Prime which will offer a Full HD 1080p display. As for other options, we expect a production-ready version of the company's Padfone to be shown at MWC, but haven't seen any concrete evidence that it will be carrying a high-resolution 720p or greater screen. Additional speculation points to a proper sequel for the original Transformer tablet, which could serve as a lower-priced alternative to the Transformer Prime. Thankfully we'll find out in short order: the Asus event at Mobile World Congress takes place February 27th. Until then, we've embedded the clip below for your viewing pleasure.
