Lenovo Exec Says Windows 7 Not Suitable For Tablets

A top Lenovo executive has claimed that Microsoft's Windows 7 OS is not suitable for use on tablet devices.

Howard Locker, the newly appointed technology director at Lenovo, said that Windows 7 is not apt for tablet devices as it has been designed for use on traditional mouse and keyboard-toting computers.

He added that in order to be used on tablet devices, Windows 7 OS needed more innovation and development.

Locker also said that, even though the platform was good for multi-tasking, it was hard on the device's battery life.

Meanwhile, Google's Android device, despite not being as good at multi-tasking, was responsible for enhancing the battery life of the device.

Another major announcement made by Lenovo was that it would not use Android 2.2 in its tablet PC offerings.

“Lenovo will not introduce Android 2.2 into its tablet computers as the operation system is not suitable to multi-functional tablet computers,” said Rory Read, Lenovo's president.
