Fujitsu sees weak PC sales thanks to slow demand for Windows 8 Written by Ron on December 28, 2012 - 04:54PM
We keep hearing it over and over. Microsoft had stated that sales for its new operating system, Windows 8, did not meet internal expectations. Over at the NYTimes, there is a report that mentions how Windows 8 failed to pack shoppers into a Microsoft Store in Bellevue, Washington, during the week of December 16th to 22nd. Now, a new report states that Fujitsu sees weak PC sales thanks to slow demand for Windows 8.
According to Fujitsu President Masami Yamamoto, Fujitsu is expected to miss its annual shipment target when it comes to PCs for 2012, all thanks to slow demand for Microsoft's Windows 8 operating system. Lots of blame is being pointed towards Windows 8 for weak sales. A few weeks back, Newegg publicly stated that Windows 8 sales were a bit slow. Funny thing is, Microsoft's main reason for the disappointed Windows 8 sales has to do with PC makers "inability to deliver." Now we have a report that states Fujitsu is blaming Microsoft for the slow demand. So who is really to blame?
