    While Acer is obviously no stranger to making Android tablets, for the most part their PC business has been all Microsoft. That is about to change, however. Apparently Acer is branching out and plans to make an Android All-in-One PC. Here's a quote with the details,

    As you can see, the intel from Intel suggests they too will get in on the action and start offering PC alternatives using Android instead of Windows. With Microsoft so far behind in the mobile world, can they really afford to start losing ground in the PC world as well?

    Intel's new mobile chipsets bode well for MS too. Cheaper W8 tablets are right around the corner. As the prices drop and development continues, I can really see the competition switching from Android v iOS to Android v W8. I really don't see enough innovation coming out of Apple to keep up, but I do think MS is gaining ground and this will only help them.

    I think its only a matter of time before MS start to gain ground in the mobile market. They always seem to have a knack of jumping on the bandwagon once a tech has been established and then completely dominating with what is essentially a complete copy of everyone elses best bits....Im not knocking them for it, they are very good at what they do and I will probably buy a W8 device when the price comes down.

    i wish they make a unique tablet. like to have their own design not from other companies then they will just clone it then give it a new name. but i like it if they will give it more pixel so the camera will be useful
