Acer Founder defends the PC platform.
In a time where we are actually closer to leaving the PC platform behind, Acer Founder Stan Shih goes the other way. Digitimes reports that Stan Shih sees Ultrabooks and tablets a short-term fad. The report is a bit confusing on why that would be the case. Shih says that notebook makers need to go back to the PC platform to create even more add-on value. Shih also complemented the Apple iPad as it was conceived by outside-the-box thinking. Notebook makers should do the same thing.

Here is some of my outside-the-box thinking. Tablets are here to stay. Keyboards and mice slowly disappear and touch will be the major interface joined by voice control. The PC platform will have less relevance in the near future. We will see new devices without PC platform legacy that will disrupt the personal computer market.

Also of interest, the Acer Iconia A100 is supposed to come this month for $300 according to earlier leaks in July. This Digitimes report says the price will be rather less than $345.
