Computex 2016 - The deal between Adblock Plus and ASUS is apparently off: new ASUS smartphones and tablets won't come pre-installed with Adblock Plus.
"Of course, we must also have consideration for our brand image and we cannot be in connection with the company, who has apparently been sued by various media," an unnamed ASUS rep told Mobile Geeks at Computex 2016. Furthermore, Google Chrome has replaced ASUS homegrown web browser on the company's latest ZenFone trio
The publication reports that ASUS was shocked that Adblock Plus CEO Till Faida prematurely broke the news, causing ASUS to think twice about the agreement. It looks like the deal is off, but ASUS has yet to make an official statement.
