Acer Will Build Windows RT-Based Devices Sometime

Microsoft and its Surface tablets have raised a couple of eyebrows, some of which belong to hardware manufacturer. Not so long ago Acer’s CEO JT Wang urged Microsoft to think twice because “it will create a huge negative impact for the ecosystem and other brands may take a negative reaction. It is not something you are good at…” Another Acer executive, Campbell Kan, president of personal computer global operations, wondered whether the company should “still rely on Microsoft, or should we find other alternatives?”

Acer has been removed from the list of Microsoft Windows RT device makers but a spokesperson said that “Acer plans to incorporate Windows RT into our product roadmap, but we have not yet confirmed the timing of our product launches”. Of course, at the moment, details about the Surface tablets’ pricing are unknown if you disregard the rumors, as are details concerning the exact list of hardware makers in line for Windows 8-powered tablets.
