Shih said: “Microsoft’s true intentions is not to sell its own brand of Tablet PC”, “Once the purpose is reached, Microsoft will not reproduce any style equipment.”
The Shih think Microsoft’s strategy is to encourage equipment manufacturers Windows Tablet PC. Microsoft has no reason to sell hardware, because the profits is less than software licensing. Stan Shih, analysts said Microsoft’s strategy is to achieve this goal.
Needless to say, Microsoft’s strategy has shown a positive effect. A more ironic view is that Microsoft offers its own brand of tablet PCs in order to better compete with Apple Andrews. Microsoft’s own brand of Tablet PC to PC manufacturers put pressure on. They had not received any warning, now must compete with each other at the same time contend with Microsoft.
It is said that Dell released today the official commented: “Microsoft is an important cooperative partner of Dell, we look forward to Windows 8 tablet PCs and other products in the autumn of this year.
