Acer Chairman Shih: We are not merging with HTC
With rumors swirling in Taiwan about a hook up between Acer and troubled manufacturer HTC, it is the Chairman of Acer that is denying that there is anything to the speculation. Stan Shih has told Taiwanese media that Acer has no plans and no intention on merging with HTC. Recently, the latter firm reported its second consecutive operating loss. After accounting for the proceeds from the sale of its remaining Beats Audio holdings, the company managed to eek out a net profit for the period.

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.
