Acer’s tablet sales figure isn’t anything to cry home about but then, who else apart from Amazon is having a successful run at the tablet market so far? However, that does not mean the company is calling it quits as far as tablet devices are concerned though this has presented a perfect opportunity for rumors mongers who have been trying to spread the word that Acer is pulling out of the tablet race given the company’s poor show with its present tablet devices.
All of this has been put to rest with company founder Stan Shih stating that the company is going to go ahead with its tablet devices notwithstanding their lackluster performance. Talking to DigiTimes, Shih did agree that the company had not done too well in the tablet scene this far, but he held hopes for a better future in the tablet market, which the company would be able to cash upon. For reference, Shih cited the case of Acer Notebooks, which also had a slow beginning but picked up thereafter to rank on top of the vendor list.
