Acer cuts Android tablet sales target by 50 percent

Posted on Thursday, June 16 2011 @ 22:44:25 CEST by

DigiTimes reports Acer has cut its annual tablet PC shipment forecast from originally 5-7 million units to only 2.5-3 million units, while Motorola, RIM and Samsung all reportedly reduced their tablet PC sales targets for 2011 as well.
At the company's investors meeting on June 15, Acer chairman JT Wang pointed out that the company is currently in the middle of a great transition and the company's current goal is to lower its retail channel inventory. The company expects to continue working on digesting its inventory throughout the third quarter with expectations to have an inventory level the same as 7-8 years ago. Although Acer will reduce its annual tablet PC shipments, Wang is still confident about the performance of Android-based tablet PCs.

Wang pointed out that all the things that the closed system can do will all be able to function in the open system, but if consumers use the former, they will need to follow everything the closed system designers says and have no choice for expansion, or run Flash, and will not be able to be their own master. Acer is trying to serve consumers who want to make their own decisions.
