ASUS takes its name from Pegasus, the winged horse in Greek mythology that symbolizes wisdom and knowledge. The Taiwanese company embodies the strength, purity, and adventurous spirit of this fantastic creature, and soars to new heights with each new product it creates. This visionary approach is the reason ASUS is able to bring high-quality innovation and design to all, and the reason for its widespread acclaim. While Asus has continued to grow over all its product lines, there has been a significant push for their mobile phones over the last two years. The company has launched a variety of phones keeping budgets and usage patterns in mind. In 2015, ASUS earned 4,368 awards from some of the most prestigious international organizations and media groups worldwide. ASUS has consistently achieved significant year-on-year growth in terms of consumer notebook units shipped too, and closed 2015 on a high with revenues hitting US$14 billion.
