Teething problems were expected
Acer is dismissing rumours that it will pull out of tablet and smartphone markets next year.
Acer founder Stan Shih admits that all is not well in the company’s tablet business, but it is still not time to pack up and leave. Shih argued that Acer encountered similar challenges when it entered the netbook market, so the outfit is used to slow initial sales.
However, Shih announced that Acer will try to streamline its corporate organization and focus on profitable products. So, Acer will reduce the number of tablet and smartphone models accordingly, but it will not ditch them altogether.
