    We have an Asus "daily double" for you guys today. The tech company is supposedly working on a couple of intriguing new devices that will hit this summer. The first is an Intel-powered smartphone. It supposedly will be using the Intel Atom Z2580 processor, with two cores running at up to 2GHz. This is the same chip that is in the Lenovo K900 smartphone. This new device will supposedly include a 5 to 5.5 inch display and is likely for emerging markets in China, (although it is possible we will see it elsewhere internationally). The earliest it will launch will be in June.

    The second new device from Asus is actually a newly updated and improved Nexus 7 tablet. It is expected to launch in May, which is none too surprising considering Google I/O is happening that month. No real details were given about this new Nexus 7 other than it will have enhanced internals and will probably sell for around $250. Here's a quote with the details,
