    Lenovo entering 'PC plus' era, CEO says


    PC demand growth has waned over the past year as more consumers flock to ultraportable and increasingly powerful tablets and smartphones for basic computing. Hewlett Packard (HP), Dell and other stalwarts of the PC industry are now fighting to sustain growth as tablet computers eat into their PC-related businesses.

    But PCs aren't disappearing anytime soon.

    "We don't live in a post-PC world," Lenovo Chief Executive Yuanqing Yang said in an interview in Las Vegas on Wednesday. "We are entering the PC plus era."

    Yang said it is a post-PC world for one group: companies that do not innovate in PCs.

    Lenovo, he said, has redefined the category with products like Yoga, a laptop running Microsoft Corp's Windows 8 that can be converted to a tablet PC by flipping the screen all the way backwards, and Twist, another laptop that has a screen connected through a hinge.

    The two laptops have had brisk sales in the United States with Lenovo capturing 40 percent consumer market share in the $900 and above category.

    I guess Microsoft got it right. They developed Windows 8 for this very reason.

    Unfortunately it's very hard to get that point across.

    The point of the article is that Lenovo does not believe that the PC/laptop is dead and that the future is only in tablets and mobile phones. It's another observation that the traditional desktop environment is valid and must be supported.

    Sometimes it isn't getting a point across, but having to admit there is change coming. And, people sometimes find it hard to accept change (always have and always will).

    It's more evolution than revolution and, honestly, Microsoft is once again somewhat late to the party. A long time ago, I thought that hand held devices would be ubiquitous and supplant the desktop PC. They are most certainly ubiquitous, but I now believe that they will be an adjunct and each filling a requirement, with some overlap, but no one device taking over all functions.
