Acer: The Microsoft Surface is “negative for the market”

is now the third largest computer manufacturer in the world and is not happy with Microsoft’s plans to launch its own hardware.

“We have told to rethink it. Think twice. Create an enormously negative impact on the ecosystem and other brands may react negatively. It’s not something you’re good, so think twice, “said company CEO JT Wang, the Financial Times.

The president of operations for personal computers, Campbell Kan, also said the company is considering how to respond to the Surface, and what comes to the future. “If Microsoft is going to enter the hardware business, what should we do? Should we still rely on Microsoft, or should seek other alternatives? “Said the executive.

With the release of Surface, Microsoft remains a software company exclusively in the area of operating systems. Until now, has always been sold on equipment manufactured by others, and that model could change now, which is unsafe for some manufacturers.

It is expected that the Windows version of RT goes on sale along with Windows 8, the 26th of October.
