re: Acer Could Leave Windows Camp Over Surface
Yeah, just where will Acer go, make iMacs? Acer is hardly an innovator of anything, instead riding on the coat tails of others.
Take their W500 Windows Tablet. What a joke of a device. Perhaps if Acer had put more than 12 dollars into R&D and built a fantastic tablet, Microsoft wouldn't be making it's own. Apparently that thought never entered the mind of Acer's CEO.
Right, let Acer make Android tablet and see how that goes up against Samsung, Toshiba and anyone else who makes them. Acer is known as a third tier (or turd tier) make of computers. Who thinks of Acer when making a computer purchase decision?
Had Acer shown a tablet that made impact, was thin, light and powerful, maybe with some new features like a dock for a smartphone to act as the Internet connection, a slide in affair instead of a snap on dongle type, maybe that would show their CEO is more action than mouth piece.
See ya Acer, no worries, someone else will gladly take the customers you used to have. Oh wait, isn't that what is happening? Yes, other are taking away your customers because you have nothing better to offer other than excuses.
