Mr icsu

one thing is the UI design and the conception that you like or dislike...
and an other thing the technology that is behind an OS...
you could say bad thing about WP UI, etc., but saying the OS itself is bad, tells me that you judge upon feelings, and you don't know nothing about how optimized the WP is, and the code behind it is much more effective and stable than Android's

think twice before posting stupid things...

Very arrogant and short sighted Mr Acer. One day soon when the WP achieves 15%, there will not be any room on the Windows bus for you and the likes of you

No risk mean no gain !
By the decision,Acer might soon become a stagnant/dead OEM.

This article has two mistakes.
1. Its not 3 years, its only 2 and a quarter year since Acer Allegro was launched.
2. Sony sold off the VAIO brand and any rumours relating to Sony and VAIO are bound to be untrue.

I would prefer if you can make a window 8 full desktop version of of you phone/phablet. I love phablet. 6-7 inch will be nice, remember thin bezel only. With windows 8 in your phone, I will ignore android tablet. Android, IOS, Windows Phone 8 lack flash. I am sure you can do it, you already have you Windows 8 tablet, make a thin bezel in your windows 8 tablet, convert it to phablet, I will be the 1st to buy it as soon as it reaches my country (MALAYSIA). There is a full wondows 8 phone available (ITG XP PHONE) but it never reach my country.

Nobody wants an Acer. They can stick to making shitty phones on Android.
