Global PC manufacturers Acer has not tasted much success in the smartphone market, when the company came up with handsets like CloudMobile, Liquid Gallant and Liquid Glow in the past. However, it seems Acer is now in plans to strengthen the smartphone business to challenge major players prevailing in the market.
This can be said as reports are swirling around in the web space that the company is planning to launch an Intel chip based smartphone in the market very soon. According to The China Post,Acer will release the new smartphone by Q4 this year.
Peter Shieh, Vice President of Acer’s business division in Taiwan hinted about the release of a new model during the launch event of Acer S500 smartphone. He mentioned that the new model will be arriving with Acer’s cloud services pre-installed. However, he did not reveal any further details regarding the specifications of this new Intel chip based smartphone.
Reportedly, Acer has been continuously associating with leading hardware manufacturers for expanding its horizons. The launch of the new Intel chip based smartphone will re-affirm the strength of Acer’s relationship with Intel. This association will put pressure on competing firms like Qualcomm and Samsung who will feel the need to develop efficiently performing chips at a faster rate.
