Gloom News from Windows 8 Notebook Supply Chain

New report from the Asian supply chain raises issues with Windows 8 touchscreen laptops.

I am pretty excited about Windows 8 in general. It should be the turning point for Microsoft and start getting some growth momentum again. There are though some concerns about how fast Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 sales will be growing. Last week the Windows Phone 8 phones from Nokia got unveiled with no release date. Rumors say now that November is the launch for Windows Phone 8 devices. That is pretty late in the Holiday shopping quarter to generate huge sales.

Now a report on Digitimes highlights issues vendors have with Windows 8 notebooks. Especially touchscreen laptops are supposed to have high-cost associated with it which only would make them attractive for early adopters. Demand for Touchscreen Windows 8 laptop would kick in somewhen in 2013. Given that touchscreen input is the new killer feature of Windows 8 this is a serious problem for the success of Windows 8.
