Current smartphone underdog, Acer, are set to unleash six new smartphone models in 2013, where they'll target all market segments in Europe, China and Southeast Asia, according to Acer president, Jim Wong.




Out of the six models, one of them will be a Windows Phone 8 device, with the remaining five sporting Google's Android OS. High-end models will sport Qualcomm's dual-core CPU, with entry-level models using solutions from MediaTek.


Acer will concentrate selling their new smartphones in Europe through already-established sales channels, as well as tightening up relationships with telecom carriers. In regards to emerging markets, Acer will look into Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and India. In China, Acer is looking to increase sales in the entry-level and mid-range markets, but won't be pushing anything into the ultra-low-price segment.


Acer is outsourcing the production of their new smartphones to Qisda and Compal Communications in 2013, citing they'd like to see consistency in design.
