"Acer plans to launch Windows Phone 7 (WP7)-based smartphones in 2011 in addition to Android-based models and projects its total shipments of smartphones to reach several million units for the year, according to Aymar de Lencquesaing, president of Acer's Smart Handheld Business Group (SHBG)."
First Nokia, now Acer. It seems that most hardware manufacturers are starting to see the potential of Windows Phone 7. Hopefully Motorola will see the light at some point as well. While Acer looks to take on Windows Phone 7, they still want to maintain their relationship with Android. They plan to release 7-10 new smarthphones a year. I wonder what the ratio will be WP7:Android.
