Acer CEO to Microsoft: ‘Think twice’ about Surface tablets

“JT Wang, chairman and chief executive of Acer, said Microsoft’s plans to launch its own “Surface” tablet in October – in direct competition with his company’s Iconia or HP’s TouchPad tablets would be ‘negative for the worldwide ecosystem’ in computing,” Robert Budden and Sarah Mishkin report for The Financial Times.
“He is the first head of a big PC maker to criticise Microsoft’s move publicly,” Budden and Mishkin report. “‘We have said [to Microsoft] think it over,’ he told the Financial Times. ‘Think twice. It will create a huge negative impact for the ecosystem and other brands may take a negative reaction. It is not something you are good at so please think twice.”’”
