Fujitsu Executive: PC makers’ Bet On Windows 8 Has Failed

We have seen some reports about poor Windows 8 sales from analysts. Japan based Windows OEM Fujitsu is not so pleased with Windows 8 demand. Fujitsu President Masami Yamamoto have told reporters in Tokyo that the weak demand for Windows 8 led to poor sales of its Windows based products.

“We can’t be optimistic about the PC industry,” said Yoshihisa Toyosaki, a Tokyo-based analyst at Architect Grand Design, an electronics research and consulting company. “PC makers’ bet on Windows 8 has failed, as cheaper tablet computers are taking away customers.”

He also added that Fujitsu won’t cut prices of its products to increase sales as some of its competitors are discounting to sustain sales.
