Acer could be following the likes of Motorola and Lenovo if they indeed plan to use Intel's Atom chips on their smartphones.
"I think there is the chance [of seeing that happen]," Peter Shieh, an Acer vice president, told reporters when asked about the Intel-based phone, according to Taipei Times.
"Intel is a more familiar partner to us because we have been working together in the PC sector for a long time," an Acer official said, speaking to The China Post.
Will moving on from Qualcomm chips a wise move for Acer?
