ViewSonic Reaffirms Its Commitment To Its Windows® Tablet Strategy

n the wake of HP’s failed webOS initiative, ViewSonic holds true to its tablet strategy


WALNUT, Calif. – August 19, 2011 – Following HP’s launch of its TouchPad tablet line in June 2011, the company yesterday announced that it will cease production of all tablet offerings.ViewSonic Corp. would like to take this opportunity to assure its customers that it will continue to support and deliver innovative tablet solutions.

“ViewSonic was among the first manufacturers to introduce a tablet solution back in Q4 2010,” said Jeff Volpe, president of ViewSonic Americas. “Since that time, we have rolled out more tablet offerings than any other provider, focusing on particular market demands. From our business-focused Windows® solutions with Android™ integration to our multimedia-optimized consumer offerings, ViewSonic has delivered a diverse tablet portfolio that addresses a wide range of individual needs. In light of this recent industry news, we would like to thank our customers for their continued loyalty and support of our products and ViewPad® line. We reaffirm that ViewSonic is fully vested in the tablet market and know you will be excited by what’s in store for the coming months.

“HP’s move to launch a tablet with an unknown OS appears to have presented a challenge in marketing their tablet solution. The webOS, unfamiliar to both consumers and enterprises, complicated the tablet sales process and thus deemed a failed experiment.

“ViewSonic offers a wide variety of solutions that are built on tried-and-tested operating systems. Our commitment to development on Windows OS remains strong and our strategic decision to partner with Microsoft was made with our customers in mind.”

ViewSonic joins in “11 in 11” campaign with shoe drive to benefit Soles4Souls® Inc.


Companies invite Southern California residents to recycle their ‘gently worn’ shoes in an effort to distribute 11 million shoes in 20011 to people in need


Nashville, TN – April 5, 2011 – Soles4Souls Inc. has committed to collect and distribute 11 million shoes in 2011 to people living in extreme poverty and recovering from natural disasters through its “11 IN 11” campaign. ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of computing, consumer electronics and communications solutions, today announced its involvement in the project.

For a limited time, Soles4Souls and ViewSonic will be collecting gently worn footwear and/or donations to make a tangible difference through the gift of shoes. Every donation will support the charity’s initiative to distribute 11 million pairs of shoes in 2011. Those wishing to participate may start bringing shoes to ViewSonic from 8:00am – 5:00pm PDT, located at 381 Brea Canyon Road In Walnut, Calif.

Soles4Souls gives away one pair of shoes to a person in need every 7 seconds. Since 2005, the organization has distributed more than 12 million pairs because of the generosity and commitment of organizations like ViewSonic.

“We jumped at the opportunity to participate in such an important initiative,” said Jeff Volpe, president of ViewSonic Americas. “The enthusiasm and commitment of organizations like Soles4Souls are making a difference in communities all across the world. We are proud to be given the opportunity to empower our community to be a force of change as well.”

“With the earthquakes in countries like Haiti and Chile, and the recent disaster in Japan, we can use the estimated 1.5 billion shoes taking up space in the closets of ordinary people to change the world one pair at a time,” said founder and CEO of Soles4Souls, Wayne Elsey. “We rely on the generosity of partners like ViewSonic to make this initiative a reality.”

ViewSonic will collect gently worn shoes from April 4th to April 15th, 2011.
 

People and companies interested in donating can visit the organization’s website at www.giveshoes.org.
