FUD Zilla writes Acer had a change of heart regarding Microsoft's Windows RT operating system. The company was reluctant to adopt Windows RT, and wanted to see how Windows RT tablets did before making one itself, but now Acer said it will launch a RT tablet later this year.
Now that Windows RT is slowly turning into another Microsoft flop, Acer has decided to launch its first Windows RT tablet. There is still no word on a specific launch timeframe, let alone specs, but Acer believes the OS has a lot of potential.
Oliver Ahrens, President of Acer EMEA operations, told IT World that Acer’s wait-and-see strategy was sound. He argued that the company wanted to see how the market would develop before releasing a product. He said that one competitor sold just 20 Windows RT tablets a day, but he did not name the company in question.
