The TBR Computing research team invites you to an invitation-only webinar on Thursday, Oct. 18, 2012, for a recap and analysis of vendor performance as reported in TBR's 2Q12 Computing Devices Benchmark. The webinar will focus on how specific vendor, go-to-market and resource management strategies impact financial performance. TBR Senior Analyst Ken Hyers will share his perspective on the results, and provide additional insight into the performance and future of the devices market.
Topics discussed will include:
• How Apple and Samsung are targeting the mass market, and how other vendors must differentiate to compete in a market rife with legal issues, business planning and technical innovation
• How uncertainty in the PC market and the impending launch of Windows 8 is slowing PC sales, and how vendors are preparing for the launch of the new platform
• The new Windows 8 OS will bring true business compatibility to tablets for the first time; however, purchase decisions will be delayed until 2013, resulting in minimal gains in 2012.
•How the increasing clarity in consumer and commercial tablets in terms of ease of use, design and price point dictates market acceptance and segmentation
