Apple iPad’s success, no doubt a major IT company to enter the Tablet PC market, an important driving force. According to the “Daily Economic News” reported that Microsoft, Google, HP, Dell and Nokia and other companies have plans to enter the Tablet PC market. a survey agency is expected in 2010 Tablet PC shipments worldwide will reach 10.5 million units. Morgan Stanley to the latest study shows that online sales growth rate of this has slowed. in July last year, Internet sales increase of this 641% increase in December last year, 179%, in January of this year fell to 68%. iPad will erode the share of the Internet. 44% of the potential iPad user said, compared with notebook computers, they are more willing to choose iPad; 27% of the iPad potential users, said compared with the desktop, she is more willing to buy iPad. Why fame Tablet PC The so-called Tablet PC means no flip, with a touch screen instead of the traditional physical keyboard, laptop computer, its performance and normal or nearly the same laptop. Such Tablet PC host computer with a number of integrated touch screen LCD, the handwriting input as its main input, they also stressed that the move to use, of course, may at any time through USB port or other port on an external keyboard and mouse. However, the Tablet PC in the past compared to today’s tablet PCs have a certain degree of change and innovation. The future, Tablet PC sales are expected to achieve significant for two main reasons: first, date, Tablet PCs in the minds of consumers is only a conceptual framework, physical products in the market basically blank, help to attract the attention of consumers. Secondly, the Tablet PC will be able to beat e-book. Tablet PC’s performance comparable to laptops, smart appearance and this, e-books is similar, and have books by all of the features. again, Tablet PC portable fashion.

Finally, the Tablet PC more stylish features to expand. Today, the Tablet PC on behalf of?? Ipad, except in the United States, yet in other countries and regions on sale, but some Chinese and European consumers can not wait to spend high prices from the online shop to buy from the United States, while this new products, parallel imports and smuggling of goods also began to visit Asia. will replace the Internet in this market? Although the iPad in the market was a great success, notebook computers and the Internet had the impact of this market, but the industry believes that the Tablet PC to replace the laptop with the Internet this is a very difficult task. In a recent financial report at the end of Dell, Dell’s president of global SME Stephen that the “Tablet PC notebook products can never be replaced, in terms of both performance and applications, Tablet PC is a supplement to the personal computer, but not all. Tablet PC and the Internet the same as always, a subsidiary product, or a complementary type devices. The real star is still the notebook products. ” Although the majority of fans of Sony are involved in considering the field of tablet PCs, but Sony’s senior vice president of information technology Aba Rui said, “over the years we have been closely watching the development of tablet PCs, not only because of Apple’s success, but also because Tablet PC brings interesting opportunities. iPad has brought new opportunities and get market recognition. but we can not determine whether the market is large enough. ” At the same time, ASUS CEO Jerry Shen has said in its quarterly earnings conference, although the Apple iPad is very hot, but the Tablet PC and the Internet will not overlap in this market positioning, Internet sales still higher than the Tablet PC. Shen to believe that Tablet PC is a greater reliance on network-based cloud computing technology products, while the network’s reliance on the Internet not so strong, a lot of single task can be completed. he also acknowledged that, if not Apple’s accession, Tablet PC slower now than start over. However, many manufacturers have begun operations. HP announced last month will be 12 billion for U.S. smart phone maker Palm. HP said in its Tablet PC operating system used in Palm’s WebOS. Tablet PC in to see the huge potential market growth, Intel, Nvidia, and AMD and other chip makers are also plans to introduce a chip specifically for Tablet PC. Last week, Intel executives said in an analyst conference in early June of this year’s Computex show in Taipei on tablet PCs based on Intel chips will debut. Huawei, Dell, Lenovo and other manufacturers have announced plans to launch its own Tablet PC models. but so far, in addition to Apple iPad still hot, other computer makers are still not yet officially launched its Tablet PC models. Tablet PC to replace the Internet for the market, major computer makers are taking a non-approved manner. Therefore, whether the ultimate Tablet PC to replace the Internet in this market, they must depend on the market do the talking, short-term outcome may be unspeakable.
Global PC sales rose 18 percent year-on-year for the third quarter of 2011, analyst firm Canalys has said.
Total sales of tablets were almost three times the level they were at in Q3 2010, with notebook sales up 9 percent. Desktop sales were also up 8 percent though netbook sales declined by 28 percent.
Canalys argues that although tablets continue to disrupt desktop, notebook and netbook sales, they are also the driving force in the growth of the PC market. China is the region where demand is highest, with 18 percent of worldwide volumes of PC sales, representing growth of 27 percent.
Apple’s tablet shipments grew by 166 percent though its share of the worldwide market fell from 96 percent in Q3 2010 to 67 percent in Q3 2011 as a result of increasing competition from rivals Samsung, Asus and Acer, Canalys said. It also predicted that Apple’s market share would be further eroded next quarter.
Apple sold 11 million iPads in the last quarter and remains in second place in the total PC market with a 15 percent share, behind HP (16 percent) and ahead of Lenovo (12 percent), Dell (10 percent) and Acer (10 percent). Apple also maintained a top-two position in each region, Canalys said.
“Ongoing legal and media battles between Apple and its current closest competitor, Samsung, kept the top two pad vendors in the spotlight over the course of Q3,” said Canalys analyst Tim Coulling.
“The result is that the pad market is being portrayed as very much a two-vendor race, with Samsung benefitting the most from the extra publicity on the global stage. in reality though, competition is intensifying as more vendors enter the market and seek to capitalize on growth opportunities.”
However, the two-horse race scenario won’t last for long, at least in the US. the launch of the Kindle Fire in the run-up to Christmas will see Amazon grab second place in the US tablet market, with sales of two million Kindle Fires expected in the fourth quarter.
Acer Taiwan president Scott Lin knows that tablet PCs are currently selling like hotcakes. Yes, as someone who leads a company that sells devices being taken over by these slate-like contraptions on the market, Lin is bound to realize just how much of an impact tablet PCs are having on computers such as notebooks these days. Well, the tablet PC may be enjoying its ride in the waves of success right now, but according to Lin, upcoming Ultrabooks such as the Acer Aspire S3 will be the ones having the last laugh. Lin’s theory is that since ultrabooks can go toe to toe with tablet PCs not just in terms of performance but also in terms of thinness and lightness, consumers will soon realize that it’s ultrabooks that they want to buy instead of another iTablet from some fruity company in California. Lin bets that Windows 8-powered ultrabooks will be the prime driving force of PC makers in taking the market back from tablets. in a few months, we should be able to see if there’s any truth at all in what’s been said above.
