Acer jumps on board the e-Reader, app store, tablet and Chrome OS bandwagon

January 26th, 2010 at 6:31 AM

Looking to diversify as it seeks to advance its position from the #2 to the #1 PC manufacturer in the world, Taiwanese manufacturer Acer has laid out a long list of ambitious products slated for launch in 2010. The list includes a new tablet device powered by Windows or Google’s Chrome OS, a netbook powered by Chrome OS, a six inch monochrome e-reader with European distribution as well as an application store for its Android and Windows Mobile-powered smartphones. Acer has a bit of a distance to make up if it wants to occupy the #1 slot as the worlds largest PC manufacturer — it currently has a worldwide PC market share of 13.5% and lags behind leader HP which commands a 19.8% market share. Though they’re hoping this expansion into diverse markets and, in particular, its tablet and netbook offerings will help to propel it forward as it seeks to overtake HP by 2013. Dream big, Acer, dream big.
