Computer Manufacturers showcase First Batch of Windows 10 computers at IFA 2015
The world's leading trade show for consumer electronics and home appliances, IFA kick-started in Berlin on Friday. On the opening day of home electronics show, IFA 2015, manufacturers of computers showcased the first batch of Window 10 devices.
Past few years were not good for the computer industry as the sale of computers declined rapidly. In the era of smartphones and tablets, consumers don't want to spend their money on computers. Now, the companies of the industry have pinned their hopes of revival on Window 10, latest version of Microsoft's operating system.
The computer companies that have unveiled their new devices with Window 10 include Japanese multinational conglomerate corporation, Toshiba. The company has launched its Satellite Radius 12 this week. In Europe, the 12- inch laptop will be available at 1,449 euros. According to the company, the device has a special microphone and infrared cameras to identify a user by faces.
Tony Alderson, senior product manager at Toshiba, said the company is expecting many new sales October onward due to latest version of Microsoft's operating system. Toshiba has also launched Satellite Click 10. The device with Windows 10 can be detached and used as a tablet.
According to experts, companies are betting on Windows 10, which could pay off. Rudolf Aunkofer, global director IT at consumer research firm GfK, said, "Last few years, many people bought Android tablets instead of buying a new computer, but that market is saturated now. At the same time laptops are getting quite old, so Windows 10 is likely to kick off a wave of replacements".
