Nine WinMo phones, one Android coming

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

An Acer executive has sketched out the firm’s handset plans for 2009, announcing that all but one of its planned devices will be based on Windows Mobile.

Speaking at the Reuters Global Technology Summit in Paris yesterday, Aymar de Lencquesaing, the head of Acer’s phone division, said it plans to launch around ten handsets this year.

He added that Acer will launch a Google Android-based smartphone later this year – something CEO Gianfranco Lanci’s already confirmed – but failed to provide a more definite launch date.

Market watcher Strategy Analytics has previously forecast that Android smartphone shipments will increase by a whopping 900 per cent during this year over last.

Several companies, including Samsung, have already sketched plans to launch multiple Android-based phones this year. ®
