“You certainly can’t accuse Acer’s top suit Gianfranco Lanci of lacking ambition. Having outed two new Android tablets, a smartphone/tablet hybrid and a new Windows effort this week, he reckons his company can take Apple’s tablet top spot within two to three years,” Joe Minihane reports for T3.
MacDailyNews Take: iCal’ed with gusto.
Minihane reports, “Speaking to Digitimes, Lanci was in bullish mood. ‘Sales of iPad pushed forward very fast initially, but have slowed down in the past few weeks,’ he said. However, there’s no proof that the latter is the case, with Apple having sold around 7.5 million since its launch in April.”
MacDailyNews Take: Proof, who needs proof when you’re the head of a plastic junk assembler?
Minihane reports, “Warming to his theme, Lanci said, ‘We hope our tablet PCs can reach a global market share of 10-20% initially, and become the market leader in two to three years.’ That’s mighty ambitious seeing as Acer’s tablets aren’t even due to go on sale until April next year, by which point the iPad 2 will probably be on shelves.”
