According to a Bloomberg Tokyo report, Fujitsu’s president Masami Yamamoto blamed Windows 8’s sluggish demand, for the company missing their annual shipment target for PCs. He stated that the company has fallen short by 7 Million units according to its October shipping estimate.
Acer’s President Jim Wong also expressed the same sentiment this week, although he didn’t mention any sales/unit shipment numbers. He said said that it could be due to the learning curve on Windows 8’s touch interface.
However, according to CNET U.S. analysts, the demand for Windows 8 PCs is strong across America. IHS iSuppli also said that some vendors simply cannot keep these Touch Screen based Windows 8 PCs on the shelf.
