In the face of "splitting" decisions, Hewlett-Packard will split or sell PC business "significantly positive" news, Acer and Lenovo Group [5.39 3.26%] China's two responsible persons happy to bloom, two company executives openly Come out and call "Opportunity Comes." On the contrary, Dell has maintained its silence in the Greater China area for American companies.
The reason why Hewlett-Packard's decision "splitting" does not only mean that Hewlett-Packard has decided to spin off the PC business, but that other more specific decisions are contradictory. Hewlett-Packard has spent 1.2 billion US dollars to acquire Palm, and its webOS operating system as the best weapon against Apple. One year after the results, HP announced that it had abandoned the operation of webOS to operate smart phones and TouchPad tablet computers, and at the same time sought to sell or spin off its PC business. The poor hero WebOS is now a cake.
HP's other representative measure is that HP has reduced its TouchPad tablet PC with a price of $499 to US$99. After the demand exceeds supply, HP has again announced that it will eventually produce a limited number of TouchPad tablets.
In China, which has become the worldâ€™s largest computer market, Chinaâ€™s HPâ€™s decision-making is equally amazing. On the occasion of the HP Global CEOâ€™s visit to China, Chinaâ€™s Hewlett-Packard announced as an important measure to launch an obsolete official three or four years ago. Blogs to facilitate communication with consumers and the media, but there is almost no mention of the future development of the PC business.
Not only did HP's decision make the media and consumers feel unexpected, analysts also found it difficult to understand. Ye Lei, chief analyst of Gartner's Asia Pacific hardware system group, believes that the early disclosure of split PC business is undoubtedly a negative news for HP. â€œFor customers, the HP PC with uncertain future is not a good choice. For Hewlett-Packard's own employees, everyone will be overwhelmed and inevitably suffer."
Perhaps splitting decisions led to HP's current plunge in stock prices. However, what is worse is that, despite being affected by the "quality gate" last year, HP's market share has fallen by nearly half, and its ranking in the Chinese market has also dropped from second to fourth. However, its 7.4% market share still leaves many competitors eyeing.
Ai Rensi, Acerâ€™s Global Vice President and President of China, stated that in entering the mature PC market, there is no doubt that the withdrawal of some competitive brands will be macro? Computers provide greater market space. Lenovo Group China General Manager Chen Xudong, although not directly mentioning the name of rival Hewlett-Packard as Ai Rensi, but also said that Lenovo Group will take this opportunity to grab more market share.
Acer placed its core competitiveness in China in a low-cost and efficient organizational structure. Ai Rensi said that the withdrawal of HP's PC will have a significant impact on the US, Europe and Asia markets, and will be obviously beneficial to major manufacturers including Acer Acer.
