After Microsoft’s announcement of Surface Tablet earlier this year,it was expected that the other manufacturers won’t be in favor of the Software Giant trying to get into the PC Hardware market.
There were some like Acer who thought that it would have a negative impact on the tablet market and then there are some companies like Lenovo who are quite ok with it and ready to turn on the heat for competing with the Software Giant when the devices releases alongside the Windows 8 public release on October 26th.
Though like Acer,Lenovo who is the prime hardware partner for Windows 8 and Windows RT based devices don’t like the idea of surface tablets,but according to the Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing,it just adds up a competitor in the market.He added,”[They're] just one of our many competitors. We are still confident that we are providing much better hardware than our competitors including Microsoft,”.
According to Lenovo’s CEO,there is no doubt that Microsoft is strong in the Software business,but he thinks that when it comes to the hardware business they can’t provide a better hardware but Lenovo can.
So this makes it clear that like Acer who is also committed to bring Windows RT and Windows 8 hardware despite of the concerns over Surface tablet competition,Lenovo is also not afraid of Surface and will be trying their best to bring out a better product from their side.
