IBM and Toshiba considering low-priced Tablet PCs

By on July 11, 2003, 4:22 AM
Despite of the well below-than-expected sales from Tablet PCs, IBM and Toshiba are said to be in the talks with notebook manufacturers in Taiwan in order to launch lower priced Tablet PCs, around the $1200 mark, according to Digitimes.

[COLOR=royalblue]According to sources, Acerís Tablet PC sales now account for less than 10% of the companyís total notebook sales, while HPís Tablet PCs contribute only 2-3% of the companyís notebook shipments.[/COLOR]

Let's remember however that the laptop market is looking better than ever, and for that reason manufacturers are expected to offer Tablet varieties at a price difference not too far from that of a normal notebook, hopefully making them more appealing to the buyer.
