For years PC giant Acer is struggling to give its business a new lease of life. There is no denying to the fact that PCs are no more the center of the universe.
To some extent Acer's bad business choices are to be blamed for its downfall. Nevertheless, Acer has a long road ahead to prove its worth in the hardware business.
Meanwhile, Taiwan-based Acer should be given credit for trusting Google Chrome OS. The new report suggests that Acer maintained a leadership position by selling a large number of Chromebooks in 2013.
Now, Acer aims to launch a tablet-powered by Google's Chrome OS. Yes, you heard it right! A new report from ZDNet gives us a reason to believe that Acer could unveil the first ever touch enabled Chrome OS-based tablet later this month.
According to ZDNet, Acer's invitation for the April 29 event reads "a touch more connected," suggesting that the company has something great to show off later this month. A Chrome-based tablet could help Acer to come out of financial crisis.
Acer newly appointed chief executive Jason Chen previously told ZDNet that "We need to dig ourselves out of a hole," after the company's third annual loss was reported earlier this year.
May be Acer wants to focus its concentration towards mobile devices, such as tablets and cloud-based devices? Only time will tell!
