Acer Seeing the Light, Shifting Focus to Android

AcerA1After jumping into the handset game earlier this year with Windows Mobile, Acer looks to be changing their game plan a bit.  DigiTimes is reporting that Acer’s development strategy will see them putting Android on at least half of their 2010 models. At least, that is what “industry sources” say.

The only known Android-based handset for the moment is the A1, due out in November. Other than that, the rest of their lineup consists of Windows Mobile. On the horizon are the F1, L1 and C1/E1, all due by the end of the year.
