Acer To Deemphasize Windows in favor of Android And Chrome OS

The Register’s Neil McAllister reports that Acer has told investors that it will reduce its emphasis on Windows PCs and laptops over the next few quarters in favor of devices based on Android And Chrome OS operating systems from Google.

Citing a Wall Street Journal report, McAllister notes that the Taiwanese hardware maker plans to grow its “non-Windows business” rapidly, and that Android devices will probably make up 10 to 12 per cent of Acer’s revenue by year’s end, and that in a conference call with investors on Thursday, Acer president Jim Wong also said he sees a growing market for Chromebooks, which he said made up nearly 3 percent of the company’s shipments during the quarter that ended in June.
