the question is not yet time to leave the game. He also noticed that the disappointment is an inevitable process on the way to probable success, and he is very reminiscent of the days when Apple was faced with many
trouble started in the notebook market.
In fact, the following happened. The Acer Board of Directors discussed the company’s further development and optimization of corporate performance. As a result, it was decided to focus all efforts on
particularly profitable segments of the company’s products and some successful models. Also decided to simplify the different parts of the development process of new products. Given the time that the processes

situation in the development of products and concepts, and to consolidate resources to develop competitive products.
Acer clarified the rumors by announcing that it plans to leave the market of tablets and smartphones. Also the company is not going to reduce the number of engineers and workers involved in these
directions. However, will be taken real measures to optimal correction of the existing range. In particular, reduced the total number of current models, and the remaining will be selected

markets tablets and smartphones.
