Although Acer hit high on Microsoft’s Surface tablet by criticizing on it by saying that “it will create huge negative impact for the ecosystem,” Lenovo’s Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) division head Gianfrano Lanci said on Thursday that Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 8-powered Surface tablet will be “a good addition to a competitive market.”
Lanci said: For sure it’s not going to change the partnership. I think it’s very welcoming if other people, including Microsoft, come with Windows 8 tablets. I think it’s also proof that they really believe that with Windows 8 they can become a serious player in the tablet arena. And to have Microsoft doing that, I think it’s a good advertisement for us and other OEMs. [The company is] not negative at all about this move.
