Acer CEO Forced Out

http://news.cnet.com/8301-1001_3-20049225-92.html

Quote:
Gianfranco Lanci, who had been chief executive at Acer since 2008, disagreed with the board over the company's ongoing strategy, according to the statement from the Taiwan-based company.

Quote:
"The personal computer remains the core of our business," Wang said in a statement. "We have built up a strong foundation and will continue to expand within, especially in the commercial PC segment. In addition, we are stepping into the new mobile device market, where we will invest cautiously and aim to become one of the leading players."

Wang's statement may offer some insight into the disagreement Lanci had with the rest of the board. Lanci has been a strong proponent of Acer delving more aggressively into the mobile market with handsets and tablets.
Wonder what this means for Acer's upcoming Android tablets.

Lanci's right and Wang doesn't have a clue.

Not the same Wang who thought computers would never hurt the market for his dedicated word processors, is it?

Interesting, now the spin is Lanci wasn't focused enough on tablets? http://www.businessweek.com/news/201...-stumbles.html

Does anyone else see what is wrong with this statement?

"In addition, we are stepping into the new mobile device market, where we will invest cautiously and aim to become one of the leading players."

No one becomes a leader by investing cautiously.
