Acer to acquire E-TEN

First Gateway and Packard Bell

Acer announced that it will acquire E-TEN Information Systems, a well known and respected manufacturer of smartphone mobile and handheld devices.

 

The acquisition has been accepted by all parties involved, and the undisputed takeover (to date) will go on, subject to the usual takeover procedures such as approval from shareholders and of course if the government regulators approve.
