Acer president says there is no value in Windows RT and has no plans of building an RT device

Acer still not impressed with Microsoft RT, says "there is no value in the current version of RT."

It's no secret that Acer's head of Chinese business, Linxian Lang, is not a fan of Windows RT. He even voiced his opinion on Microsoft building its own RT hardware, stating that the company would <strong><em>"eat hard rice."</em></strong> It appears that those sentiments run deep within Acer with the company's president now speaking out about RT.

While speaking at a company event last Friday, Acer president Jim Wong said that while the company has an extensive RT release plan, it had decided to take another look at things when Surface RT was released. <strong><em>"The plan for an RT tablet is ongoing,"</em></strong> Wong said. <strong><em>"To be honest, there's no value doing the current version of RT."</em></strong>

 

So while we still might see an RT tablet from Acer, it most certainly will not be in this quarter, or maybe even the next. My guess is that Acer will announce or release an RT tablet sometime in Q4 just in time for the holiday shopping frenzy.
