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.”
