CNet’s Ina Fried now got the following quote out of a higher Acer manager:
Q: What prompted you guys at first to shift most of your energy to Android and then what is bringing you back to consider Windows Phone 7?
A: We saw a lot of limitations on Windows Phone a couple of years ago and we moved to Android because of user experience, and even the possibility to be a little more creative from a content offering and so forth is better than on the Windows phone. If we look at Windows Phone 7, today, I think we see the same opportunity you can see on Android in terms of customization.
Given that Acer is heavily involved in the production of Windows-based notebooks and PC’s, this should not come as too much of a surprise…
