This will not work in emerging and other markets and this is where Acer will move in.
Lanci said that sales of iPad pushed forward very fast initially, but have now slowed. He sees Samsung and not Jobs’ Mob as being his outfit’s main rival.
But Acer has advantages because it has PC operational experience and a good channel.
Lanci thinks that tablets are being pushed by phone makers, like Apple as a big smartphone when they should be being seen as closer to PCs.
He thinks that tablets will end up being marketed through IT retail channels rather than handset channels.
