With cloud services that are starting to pop up everywhere, it’s really no surprise to see that Taiwanese hardware vendor, Acer, has decided to hop aboard the bandwagon as well. This was probably brought on by Acer’s latest acquisition of iGware this week, a company who offered cloud software and infrastructure tools that are said to support more than 100 million consumer devices worldwide, among them being Nintendo gaming consoles.
“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,” said Acer CEO JT Wang.
Sounds like good news for Acer users as this could very well start looking like iCloud that Apple will be deploying for their Mac computers and iOS devices. The Acer Cloud will be built on an open platform, with hardware and software design integration set to begin in late September. The company also expects to launch products that use the Acer Cloud some time during 2012.
