IBM and Toshiba considering low-priced Tablet PCs

  1. 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.

    According to sources, Acer’s Tablet PC sales now account for less than 10% of the company’s total notebook sales, while HP’s Tablet PCs contribute only 2-3% of the company’s notebook shipments.

    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.
