Shen said that the company would still offer tablets that use Windows 8, like the Asus VivoTab Smart, but focus on devices powered by Intel instead of ARM.

In its last quarter, Microsoft reported it had to write-down $900 million in unsold Surface RT inventory. Since then, it's increased promotion for the Surface RT and dropped the price from $499 to $349.

Shen told the WSJ that Asus also took a writedown on its Windows RT tablets in the second quarter, but he didn't give a figure as to how much.
