Lenovo 'Fine' With Surface; Aims ThinkPad Tablet 2 At Enterprises

Summary: Acer can berate Microsoft as much as it wants, Lenovo isn't remotely bothered by Microsoft's Surface tablet. Why? Lenovo has little to lose, while Acer has a lot. 

Despite Acer berating Ms for its project into the product area, Lenovo said it isn't fussed by it. In reaction, it dished out a product new tablet: the ThinkPad Tablet 2, focused for company and business customers.

Why is Lenovo material with the Area, while Acer yowls foul? Because Acer has a lot more to get rid of than PC company head Lenovo. And Acer should be concerned.

In a few words (you probably don't need reminding): Windows Area product is the application organization's first project into the product industry. Despite its "Microsoft" marketing, it's likely that Asus is developing it, which has around 7 % of the international PC developing company, according to IDC and Gartner.
Acer, which appears in 4th position behind HP -- which will soon be overtaken by Lenovo as the world head in PC developing -- Dell and Lenovo, quit up a weather that Windows Area will force out its current OEM associates.

But as ZDNet editor-in-chief Ray Dignan described, Acer's position is "laughable" at best, and pointed out that the PC environment "needs some interruption."

The overall international PC industry is at standstill and having difficulties to sustain healthier stages. Jefferies specialist cautioned a few months ago that PC system sales could fall by as much as 10 % in the third-quarter. That hurts.

Lenovo is in a powerful position. Its fast development and focused marketplaces are raising the company to the post stage position in PC production. With near to 13 thousand deliveries in the second 1 / 4, the staying PC creators are quaking in their footwear.

Speaking to ABC News' Joanna Stern: "Microsoft is a ideal associate for us. The Area has gotten more enjoyment to the industry. The ThinkPad product is focused after the company individual; the Area is more developed towards the person providing," said Dilip Bhatia, vice-president for Lenovo's ThinkPad company department.

(ZDNet's Adrian Kingsley-Hughes has more on the specialized specifications, and Wayne Kendrick has the product picture line-up. With the statement comes two new ultrabooks -- prepared for the business.)

Of course, Lenovo isn't even slightly concerned by the Area tablet; it's too great up in the cycle for Ms to come near to in contact with it. Plus, the company is working with Ms to get Microsoft windows 8 on the product in the first position.

Acer, further down the range, will see Area as a immediate opponent. It's a story of two fronts: Ms is trying to get its application on as many pills as it can, while OEMs like Acer and Lenovo want to offer as many pills as they can, regardless of application.

The problems is, the os alone will swing the choice in what the company customer wants.

Microsoft will likely see a identical company determine to its Microsoft windows Phone platform: great enough to be in the top five producers, but surpassed in figures by its opponents. Ms will will likely see a force in Microsoft windows 8 on product deliveries, and Lenovo will help with this -- just as New samsung allows Search engines in os company by using Android operating system, and vice-versa.

Microsoft is right to move up the PC environment. It's what it depends on. Area isn't a risk to the PC environment at all; it's a wisely developed disruptor.
