He did say that Acer was looking at the windows phone 8 and that it was a very good operating system. Burnes complimented the Xbox integration and the enterprise suite but said that he felt that the product suffered from a lack of customer awareness.
Burnes went on to say that the entire smartphone team at Acer were keen to use the Windows operating system but had yet to be convinced that it would sell as well as other operating systems. He said that Acer had made the decision not to go ahead with a launch of a Windows Phone 8 devise in 2013.
