Acer Pulls Back From Windows to Focus on Android and Chromebook

SmartAboutThings (1951032) writes "More bad news for Microsoft – Acer is apparently rethinking their Windows strategy, planning to offer less Microsoft products and focus more on products delivered by Redmond’s rival Google – Chromebooks and Android devices. This comes after Acer’s second-quarter earnings call where the Taiwanese company has posted a surprise second-quarter loss, having unexpected lower sales and rising expenses. Acer's change of plans comes after not so long ago, Asus' CEO has announced that the company will no longer make Windows RT products until Microsoft proves there's real demand."
