DigiTimes reports Acer expects to ship its Jibo robot in October. This device was developed in cooperation with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Media Lab, it was originally scheduled to arrive in the first half of this year but the project got delayed to make further improvements on the robot. The retail price of Jibo will be $749, quite a bit more than the previously announced price target of $599.
Acer's current strategy is to devote 70% of its efforts to core businesses, 20% to core-related businesses and 10% to long-term investments. This means that Acer will continue to have a strong focus on the PC business, Chen noted.


The report also reveals Acer has created a new metal fan for use in gaming products and the Liquidloop cooling system for its Switch Alpha 12 2-in-1 devices. This new design promises to dissipate heat better than traditional plastic ones.
