Acer is one of the PC makers that was pretty outspoken against Microsoft's Surface tablet, and now the company revealed that it has decided to delay the launch of its Windows RT tablets to see how Microsoft's own Surface tablet ares. Acer president Jim Wong told Reuters that his company originally planned to roll out Windows RT tablets in Q1, but now it won't be earlier than Q2.
"Originally we had a very aggressive plan to come out very early next year but because of Surface, our R&D development doesn't stop, but we are much more cautious," Acer President Jim Wong told Reuters on Tuesday.

"Originally our plan was Q1, but now I don't think it will be earlier than Q2," Wong said on the sidelines of a presentation of Acer's new line of Windows 8 touchscreen notebooks and tablets.

Acer was one of the first companies to criticize Microsoft for moving into the computer hardware business and competing with its partners' devices.

Wong said research and development for the Windows RT tablets was still moving forward but that the company had many questions to address with regards to manufacturing and pricing.
