The founder of computer giant Acer is putting his money behind Android to outdo Apple – for the immediate future at least.
Stan Shih told Taiwan’s United Daily News that as far as he is concerned, Android will continue to work well because of a strong partnership between Intel and Google where both are constantly trying to come up with solutions to optimise the OS’s speed and performance.
He claims that Android has been buoyed on by both PC and smartphone suppliers to become one of the world’s favourite systems and is the antidote to Cupertino’s “walled garden” approach to the portable communication device market.
And looking further into the abyss, Shih told reporters that Android-powered Atom processors – which will be built into future devices on the platform – are likely to outsell Apple’s own inventions and lead the way when it comes to developing PCs.
