E-Ten to carry on doing other devices

According to Digitimes, Acer seems to have some internal communication issues with regard to the launch of Smartphones under the Acer brand, as late last week a company spokesperson went out and said that the launch might be as late as the second half of 2009, but now the message is that it will happen in Q'1 2009.

Exactly what devices we can expect is still up in the air and the E-Ten Glofiish V900, which we expected to be one of the first Acer branded devices, has already launched in Taiwan under the E-Ten brand. There are still two 900-series devices that were announced earlier this year that might get the Acer branding, but then again, Acer might be working on some entierly new devices.

It's rumored that the first Acer Smartphones will go on sale in Europe and Russia, but no specific countries have been detailed. Acer is also trying to get some of its Smartphones in with various network operators which might be a hard sale, unless they go down the route that Asus has done recently and allow for some kind of re-branding or co-branding of the devices.

In related news, E-Ten will go back to doing other devices, such as real-time stock market monitoring devices, which according to Digitimes was the core business of E-Ten during the late 1990's.
