Acer bets on emerging markets for expansion

,----[ Quote ]
| Mr. Lanci emphasises that going Open Source is 
| critical to the future of computing. He 
| confirmed that Acer's much-talked-about 
| notebook PC (that will run on Google's Chrome 
| Operating system) is indeed on the anvil. âWe 
| are working closely with Google on this,â he 
| said. He had earlier announced that Acer's 
| yet-to-be-named Tablet PC will also run on the 
| Open Source operating system Android. âAndroid 
| is very good, particularly in terms of 
| Internet browsing and connectivity. It is 
| efficient and light enough not to overload the 
| CPU. Also, from the consumer point of view, 
| Open Source is the most sensible option,â he 
| said reiterating his commitment to Open Source 
| products. âIt is no longer just a Wintel 
| world,â he added.
