Acer not interested in iPad-like product

Posted on Monday, February 01 2010 @ 17:55:57 CET by


Acer Taiwan president Scott Lin said that while creating an iPad-like product would not pose any technical challenges for Acer, he believes such a product does not fit into Acer's business model. Lin explained Apple may see some success with devices like the iPad, but that other players are unlikely to replicate its result simply by copying.
Apple is able to support the iPad through its iTunes ecosystem, while few other makers, including Acer, have comparable experience in operating an online store, Lin noted.

Historically, closed platforms are typically limited in terms of scale and are confined to niche markets. Apple has built is business out of carving its own niche, which means that while Apple could see success with devices like the iPad, other players are unlikely to be able to replicate its result simply by copying, Lin noted.
