A little over a week ago, we reported that Acer had “warned” Microsoft against launching their Surface tablet, claiming that it would have a negative impact. While it was not explicitly stated, Acer had also seemed to have implied that if Microsoft were to make their own hardware and software, their partners might have to move on. That being said, it seems like Acer themselves are still committed to developing Windows RT hardware despite their issue with Microsoft launching the Surface tablet. This was confirmed by an Acer spokesperson in a statement released to Computerworld. The company stated that they have Windows RT hardware on their roadmap but they do not have a timeframe as to when we might be able to expect them. In any case we are indeed looking forward to seeing what Microsoft’s manufacturing partners have up their sleeves, so stay tuned for updates!
