There’s an interesting article on DigiTimes, discussing competition between Acer and Asustek. From there, we find that Acer’s first Android-powered handset called A1 will be released in November!
That’s a good news and goes in line with what Acer was saying when they joined the Open Handset Alliance. To remind you, they said they’ll ship the first Android smartphone in the fourth quarter of this year.
As for Asus, they are partnering with Garmin to bring Nuvifone(s) to the market and who knows what else.
Acer will launch a total of 9 smartphones in 2009, and DigiTimes believes they could overtake Asus in smartphone market by the end of the year. What do you think?
