I really like it when several people state the same thing over and over again. At least, as a writer, I do. Several company executives have echoed Microsoft’s statements that it will only be a matter of time before everyone gets used to Windows 8.
And now it is time for a Vizio official to repeat the same thing.
Rob Kermode, the director of product and development for computing and mobility (whew!) over at Vizio said that while it takes some time for users to discover Windows 8, it has no doubts that in the end the operating system will succeed.
He was talking to Laptop Mag on the prospects of the new platform:
“It’s a brand-new market for us. Windows 8 is a dramatically different user experience, and it takes time for people to learn about it. Microsoft, I think in hindsight, would probably admit that it could’ve done a better job of introducing it. But all in all, we’re putting touch on every single one of our products. So we’re definitely all in on Windows 8.”
Vizio is one of the companies that have joined the Windows 8 party, and it is preparing to launch several laptops and tablets powered by Microsoft’s latest platform.
According to the vendor, several models are already in the pipeline ready to hit store shelves in the near future.
Regardless, Microsoft is still pretty mum when it comes to providing details and breakdowns of Windows 8 sales. 60 million sold is latest number, though OS market share statistics paint a somewhat sober picture.
