Acer, the Taiwanese mobile device and computer manufacturer, had decided to launch its first ever phablet device this year. Work is already underway and as Focus Taiwan reports, the Acer phablet is to be unveiled during the upcoming Computex Tech fair in Taiwan this June.
Till now, many devices falling under the phablet category have been launched and are available in the market. Including brands like Samsung, Huawei, HTC, Sony and even smaller Indian players like Micromax, Spice and Lava. With the addition of Acer, users are in for some more choice-that is for certain. However, Acer in India has not been very active in the recent past and not many devices have been announced or made available. We will soon get to know what Acer plans for the Indian market in future.
Technical information about the device’s hardware have not been revealed by the company so far, but looking at devices that have been launched by Acer in the past, this one is likely to be a competitor for the big league.
Other companies don’t target their phablets at any one age or other demographic group, while Acer’s device will be targeted at female and elderly users. Will this make the device embarrassing for men to carry around? We will have to wait and see.
