Acer unveiled its new strategies for 2008. The firm says it will head into Japan and launch low-cost PCs in the second or third quarter:
The company has already signed cooperation deals with the channel in Japan and expects to ship around 10 million notebooks, noted Wang, adding that the company will also be more aggressive as it heads into China and India.
Acer will launch its low-cost PC contender between the second or the third quarters, Wang revealed. The company will focus more over the products' mobility rather than low-cost, he added.
Acer has evaluated and concluded that Gateway has stronger research and development, and market experience in the desktop market, and therefore has decided to let Gateway's desktop division handle the related business, noted Wang.
