Acer says that iPad impact on notebook sales is not serious.

There are several reports that say that the Apple iPad is hurting notebook sales. Steve Jobs also said on Monday in the earnings call that the Tablet will clearly affect notebooks. Acer Chairman JT Wang sees things not that dramatic. According to Digitimes he said at a summit in Taiwan that the competitive impact of the Apple iPad on the notebook are not as serious as many people imagine.

JT Wang believes that Tablets will become a new mainstream segment in the PC market but not on the cost of other categories. Wang said that Steve Jobs Tablet statements might be true for the United States, but not from a global perspective.

Acer might get surprised here. I know already many people that stopped using their notebook and only travel with their new iPad. The iPad is not just a hit in the United States and when the Android competition is launching in 2011 there will be for sure an impact on global notebook market.
