Sharks Circle Low Priced Tablet Market

“Asustek’s new 7-inch tablet will focus on emerging markets including India and China, while Lenovo and Samsung Electronics are also preparing products with similar specifications and price levels, but will first observe Acer and Asustek’s competition before releasing their products.”

see Acer, Asustek to start up low price tablet competition.

Isn’t competition grand? Instead of a few monopolists charging what the market will bear, many OEMs, working for a living, provide the lowest cost solutions to many millions of consumers globally using FLOSS and ARM as means of cutting the costs of the product. The whole world benefits. FLOSS is the right way to do IT.

    7 inch Android/Linux tablets are available in Australia for A$120, cheaper in quantity.

    Hard to sell a Microsoft laptop for around a thousand dollars when competing with that!
