Acer chairman sees no serious impact on notebooks from iPad

Posted on Thursday, October 21 2010 @ 04:00:15 CEST by

Acer chairman JT Wang shared that Apple's iPad did not have a serious impact on laptop sales, and that he doesn't expect that tablets will replace netbooks in the global market:
Acer chairman JT Wang, at a recent summit in Taiwan, commented that the competitive impact of iPad upon notebooks is not as serious as many people have imagined and demand for netbooks appears to be stable around the world except in the US and UK. He added that iPad-like products will become a new mainstream segment in PC market, but will not eliminate others.

Commenting on Apple CEO Steve Jobs's forecast that tablet PCs will replace the notebook market, Wang said that Apple's theory may have its basis in the US market, but under a global perspective, Acer's statement is more accurate. He added that a new product will always have mass demand initially, but consumers will eventually return to their senses, and since iPad currently has the attention of the IT market, people only see the good side of the product and may obscure the facts.
