Lenovo® to create division for tablet PCs and mobiles

Lenovo is a computer manufacturer which is very popular among consumers for high quality laptops. Now they are planning to establish two different operating divisions focused on tablet PCs and mobile phones. With the growing tablet computer market, this move will improve its chances of making an impact in this specific sector. Tablet PCs have seen healthy growth worldwide in recent times. The tablet popularity began with iPad from Apple. Seeing the latest trend, Lenovo is also preparing itself to launch new products.

Peter Hortensius, head of product development at Lenovo, said that this year will be the most important one for the tablet computers market. He also suggested that in 2011 we will see lot of winners and losers in the tablet sector. Recently Lenovo has launched the first slate PC in the shape of LePad. But it still has a long way to go to throw a prominent challenge to the Apple iPad. Undoubtedly Apple is the leader in this specific sector with 95% share worldwide.

Now with specific operating divisions, Lenovo is looking forward to build its own tablet PC soon. Last month Lenovo launched two business performance powerhouse laptops, dubbed as E220 and E420. They are powered with Intel processors and getting positive reviews.

Lenovo also showcased some of its powerful laptops at the recently held CES 2011 with the latest intel processors. Lenovo is also launching a range of ThinkCentre M90 and M91p desktop PCs. They have different processors varying from i3, i5 and i7 processors. They are expected to offer high performance. They have three type of sizes as tower, modest and eco small form factor.

With the tablet computers market growing by the day, it will be very interesting to see the competition in coming months. Lenovo is developing the tablets to stay in the competition and also to gain more faith from consumers. We hope it will be a quality product like the Lenovo laptops.

Plans of Acer® for netbooks and Android-based devices

Technology analysts worldwide had already predicted the bleak future for netbooks since the arrival of Apple iPad on the market scene in April 2010. The biggest question that technology and market analysts put forth is does the world now need netbooks or ultra low cost personal computers (ULCPCs) after Apple introduced the iPad. A poll clearly shows what customers have on their mind. 60% of technology enthusiasts and professionals gave their verdict that netbooks  don’t have any role or place in the future.

In line with the news, came the announcement from Acer that cleared the confusion and gave a clear idea on where the market is heading. Acer has mentioned that it will discontinue its line of ULCPCs and smaller computers and focus on products like tablet PCs. Acer has recently announced that it will be soon introducing its new range of products. Acer has plan of releasing a 7-inch and 10-inch line of Android-based tablets based on Intel’s latest chips “Sandy Bridge”. The Android tablets from Acer are expected to hit the market in the first half of 2011.

Tablets are the hottest items in hi-tech computer consumer durables. A market study clearly shows a big market for tablet PCs. It is seen that consumers are ditching desktops and laptops and welcoming their slimmer cousins, that is, the tablets. The market study also showed why there is no place for netbooks in future. Generally people who owned netbooks used them for Internet searching and email and 90% of proud iPad users use them for the same purpose.

While introducing its new latest range of tablet PCs, Acer has highlighted the fact that the tablets will have four-core processors and will be faster than any other laptop or netbook running on Windows. Also, the Sandy Bridge processors of these tablets PCs, are much more powerful than the current ARM-based chips. The tablet PCs will have Android OS, which is known to run on low power chips. Thus, with so many exciting features offered by tablet PCs, it should not come as a surprise why Acer has taken the decision to phase out its netbooks in favor of tablets.

Smartphone, tablet sales to surpass PCs in 2011

Over 10 million tablet PCs are likely to be sold around the world this year, according to a Deloitte survey that is in line with a recent study by Gartner. The survey forecasts a global market for iPad up to 55 million units in 2011 after 19.5 million in 2010. While some observers consider the tablet devices as having little processing power and aimed only for media consumption, in the year 2011, more than 25 percent of all tablets will be purchased by businesses and that number should grow in 2012, says Deloitte’s annual forecast on the sector.

The year will mark the end of the reign of computers and the advent of laptops will be comparatively more, Deloitte believes so as per its prospective study. According to a statement by Duncan Stewart, director of Deloitte Research Canada, there are four or five years, the only devices used here will be laptops. Today, there are mostly smartphones and tablet PCs. More than half of the hardware sold in 2011 will be a mobile device such as a  smartphone or a tablet computer. This development should result in an increase of 60% of the applications market, which will reach $10 billion in sales.

The survey reveals that the average revenue per user (ARPU) on a social networking website is 4 dollars and evaluates the advertising market of social media at 4 billion this year, less than 1% of the total ad spending. Facebook and its peers will benefit from comfortable margins compared to other media. Deloitte predicts that smartphone sales will add 375 million handsets in 2011 and that the tablet market will reach 50 million units.

2011 can be ‘challenging’ for Microsoft: Goldman Sachs Research

Goldman Sachs is one of the largest investment firm bases in West Street New York. They primarily cater to the institutional clients in investment banking, securities and management. They provide services to major mergers and actuations to big companies. They also provide advisory services to underwriting services, asset management and brokerage services.

Apart from all these services, Goldman Sachs also performs regular research and analysis for all the major organizations on the basis of their financial structure and business planning.  In the same fashion, Goldman Sachs research note was released recently and it created a lot of buzz in the financial market. The research was about  Microsoft and it mentioned that Microsoft is about to face some challenges in the following year of 2011 and the company’s growth can drop down from 12% per annum to 7 % per annum.

The research performed by Goldman Sachs was specifically in the section of Mobile Phone and tablet PCs ventures launched by Microsoft. Last year, Microsoft has performed so many developments and got revenue benefits from its Xbox and Windows mobile project.  As per the market research, Company got almost 13.1 percent of growth in sales with these new projects.

The Goldman Sachs research says that even if Microsoft got such benefit last year, they are about to face financial challenges in the year of 2011 with their poor planning and implementation in Tablet PC.

Microsoft first came into the tablet PC market in the year of 2001 with the complete development and support dedicated to Tablet Computing. Their Tablet PCs are pen-based and comes with hand writing and voice recognition support.

The market of tablet PC is increasing day by day as a tablet PCs are very compact yet equally useful as a laptop or any personal computers. Microsoft has been doing so many evolvements in Tablet PC development but as far as the Goldman Sachs research shows, these efforts are not sufficient to attract the large numbers of investors and users.

The research has also pointed out the fact Microsoft has still not revealed the sales number of Windows Phone 7. These numbers are going to be the key revelation for the speech for Consumer Electronic Show and everyone is expecting good numbers but companies silence is saying a different story.

There have also been so many speculations, if Microsoft is going to bring the same experience in the large form-factor devices like Tablet PCs or not. As of now it seems that the Tablet PCs development and manufacturing is not in Microsoft’s major priority list and they are so far putting lot of effort and energy in Cloud Computing, Gaming console and Windows Mobile 7 development.
