Market demand for Ultrabooks and Tablets will likely increase without both segments to interfere with each other.
Ultrabooks are a market segment parallel to that of tablet PCs and without any competitive conflicts before the launch of Windows 8, according to Asus’s CEO Jerry Shen. Commenting on market watchers’ concerns that the appearance of ultrabooks may impact demand for tablet PCs, Shen is confident about Asus’s tablets and ultrabooks and believes that the two product lines will not interfere with each other’s market demand.
