Acer recently revised its estimates and, as of right now, doesn't expect "explosive growth" for Windows 8 devices when the operating system launches in October. The CEO of Acer also cited a lack of consumer interest as one of the primary reasons for the new estimate. Acer CEO J.T. Wang was cited saying, "We are still waiting for the signal of the consumers' enthusiasm."
Acer is currently the world's third largest PC vendor and originally expected high growth for the company during the second half of this year. In particular, Acer believed that Windows 8 would help usher in a plethora of new notebooks and tablet devices to the market.
However, the rocky global economy and the uncertainty of the Windows ecosystem have Wang believing that the company will most likely see medium growth. "We see that a lot of PC brand companies and also the channels have a cautious attitude," Wang added. "Although everyone is preparing for the Windows 8 launch, but still there is a lot of reservation, and so we do not see the momentum for very explosive growth has been accumulated."
These "doom and gloom" remarks from Wang don't really surprise anybody though. Wang was quoted earlier asking Microsoft to not sell its own Windows 8 tablet, known as the Surface tablet, as it would hurt the PC vendor partners that Microsoft does business with, including Acer.
Apple currently dominates the tablet market with its juggernaut iPad. Things like iPad rentals have been soaring recently, along with other tablet and laptop rentals, and I would expect that number to increase with the release of the Surface tablet. Rentacomputer.com sees the influences that certain products have on the technology industry and the iPad definitely paved the way for things like Microsoft's Surface tablet.
Many people are looking to the Surface to dethrone Apple's iPad. Many have tried and the closest (in my opinion) anyone has come has to be Samsung and the Galaxy Tab. Unfortunately, Samsung and Apple are in a huge patent war right now so we can see how well that worked out. But maybe the Surface tablet has what it takes, we can only wait and see.
