Asus chairman Jonney Shih told Zdnet: "The seven-inch is going to be phased out, although some emerging countries may still have some demand."

"I still believe we have a good opportunity in 8.9in for kids, telecoms or emerging markets," he added, indicating the 8.9in version won't suffer the same fate.
