After the acquisition of iGware by Acer this week for $320 million, the Taiwanese hardware vendor is now looking to develop its own Acer Cloud that would be used as a web based service designed to pull their PC’s, laptops and tablets devices together.
Acer has explained that their new Acer Cloud will be built on an open platform with hardware and software design integration set to begin in late September 2011. The fully finished Acer Cloud is then expected to launch products during 2012.
Acer CEO and chairman JT Wang explains:
“The goal of Acer Cloud is to allow our users enjoy and manage all their ICT devices, contents and resources with ease, by integrating all Acer products including PCs, tablets and smart handheld devices within a safe and secure environment”
