Acer Made an eSports Statement During its IFA 2017 Press Conference
The Acer press conference at IFA is quickly turning into one of my favorite annual rituals here in Berlin. You never quite know what to expect with CEO Jason Chen on stage running the proceedings, but it’s sure to be some sort of cross between quirky, upbeat, and energetic—with a side of chaos.
But the spectacle is, of course, highlighted by the numerous products that the Taiwanese computer company announces. Last year, it was the introduction of Pawbo (a pet tech company) as an Acer brand and the launch of the Predator 21X laptop that stole the show.
Updates were given on both this year, and Pawbo announced a few new products, but it was eSports that truly stole the show.
