Acer finding its bearings after management, product issues

Agam Shah | June 5, 2012
Acer lost its direction in the past few years amid management, product and supply chain issues, but the company is working its way to get back on track, company president Jim Wong said.

"Competition is the way to make users happy because everybody is trying to be innovative," Wong said.

Acer has not turned away focus from alternative operating systems such as Android and Chrome OS, which the company offers on netbooks and tablets. The lightweight operating systems are good for data access in the cloud, and the company will keep its eyes open for opportunities around the OSes.

And despite a slowdown in sales, netbooks still have some value as secondary, low-cost devices. The company isn't giving up on the product quite yet.

"We try to continuously look into these things," Wong said.
