Acer Chairman Shih: We are not merging with HTC
While putting the kibosh on the merger rumors, the Acer executive also touted his company's Build Your Own Cloud platform. He also noted that Acer's new CEO will be revealing the company's strategy next week. Jason Chen has been visiting Acer's operations and departments and will soon disclose what he learned from making those visits.
HTC, meanwhile, is putting the finishing touches on the sequel to its current Android flagship model. Most likely the HTC One+ will be unveiled at MWC next month. The device is expected to offer a 5 inch screen with 1080 x 1920 resolution, and feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 CPU under the hood.
Both Acer and HTC are headquartered in Taiwan, which no doubt makes the rumor of a merger between the two tech firms more believable.
