Acer Staying With Netbooks After All
Contrary to a recent statement by a company executive in Taiwan, Acer is not exiting the netbook market, the company said in a statement released Wednesday.
The company also said, contrary to previous reports, that use of the Intel Sandy Bridge processors in its new tablet devices is "not yet foreseen." Acer plans to introduce 7-inch and 10.1-inch Android tablets and a 10.1 Windows tablet.
"Acer recognizes that the computer market is changing. As PCs are no longer only used to create content but are more and more becoming consumption tools, new devices and new form factors are appearing," the company said in the statement. "This means the range of devices available to users is getting wider and tablets are just another piece of the mosaic. Therefore, they will find their space next to netbooks and notebooks."
