Acer looks to Brew phones in new year

We have already featured news from Acer that it is looking to release between eight and 10 new phones next year based upon the Android and Windows Mobile operating systems (probably a fifty-fifty split). However, the company is now stating that it is also looking at releasing a range of handsets based upon Qualcomm's own operating system, Brew (Binary Runtime Environment for Wireless). The reason for examing the Brew platform is to aid in its production of a range of cheaper phones that might also be targeted as feature-based designs. HTC has already talked about releasing a Brew-based HTC Touch.B.

 

In addition to the Brew news, Acer has also declared that it is strengthening its Android-based development team by adding 30 new members directly from a smartphone and personal navigation outfit called Mitac. But Acer won't stop there, the current development team of 400-500 people will soon be expanded to an impressive 750 people, according to the Digitimes website.
