Acer: Acquiered E-TEN, will have UMPC this year

Technorati-Tags: ,,,,

News from Cebit: Acer has aquired E-TEN and will enter the handheld and ultra mobile devices market. When asked (by me) what their answer to the Asus Eee-PC will be, German director Stefan Engel responded that there will be an answer this year – no more details.

In the press release, Gianfranco Lanci, President of Acer Inc., simply states: „Acer will enhance the competitiveness in the ultra mobile segment, by combining PC and communication technologies.“

Acer quit the Tablet PC market two years ago after releasing some  big but too heavy convertible Tablets and an innovative but not that comfortable model and so unsuccessful products, the C301 and the C204.
