Acer Joins Android Army, Demotes Windows Mobile

,----[ Quote ]
| Fanbois and girls alike constantly debate the future mobile
| operating landscape. Is there room enough for all of the
| current platforms or will there be just a few? From a
| consumer standpoint, thereâs room for plenty of competitors
| â after all, choice is good, right? But more choices can
| play havoc with the finances of the companies that produce
| handsets. With a fixed budget of resources â in a tight
| economy, no less â handset makers need to judiciously
| manage their resources and devote them strategically.
| Acer is reportedly doing just that, says Digitimes, and
| theyâre adding to the growing trend of phone makers who are
| joining the Android army.
