Many have wondered why Acer has yet to launch their new Windows 8 smartphone and this week we got the answer… because “no-one knows about it.”
Vice president of smartphones, Allen Burnes, said that his company would like to adopt the new system but they have yet to learn about it.
“We are looking at Windows Phone 8, we think it’s a great OS. The integration with Xbox is nice, the enterprise suite is nice, but I think no-one knows about it,” Burnes said. Burnes continued to praise the Microsoft operating system and confirmed that Acer will support it.
“The way WP8 integrates in with the rest of the Windows ecosystem is phenomenal,” Burnes said.
Acer has supported past versions of the mobile OS and launched the Windows 7.5 smartphone in 2011.
