With the growth of e-commerce in Malaysia, Acer has jumped on the bandwagon with their very own Online Store. While there are other existing retailers selling Acer products online, the new dedicated store aims to mirror the experience of a physical concept store. This includes having up to date products, clear visuals and a pleasant delivery experience backed by official after sales service.
Malaysians purchased 4.8 million smartphones and 0.9 million tablets during the first half of 2015. Numbers which rose by 42% and 15%, in the two aforementioned categories, compared to the same half of 2014. Predominately, sales were geared towards makers from China and Taiwan for smartphones and the tablet space still leans towards global vendors.
The 11 in the Acer Aspire R 11, stands for the size of the screen. Acer has had some experience in the convertible computer department with pass models – R 13 and R 15. Capable of 4 modes: laptop, tablet, display and tent, this yoga-like device will run on Intel’s latest Pentium Braswell processors. A grand launching of sorts, Acer’s latest convertible will be the first device in Malaysia to have Windows 10 pre-installed.

More after the break
It’s been awhile since we’ve seen a new Liquid smartphone but we didn’t quite expect it to be a new Windows Phone from Acer.
Dubbed the Acer Liquid M220, the new smartphone looks like another attempt to hit the budget market by the brand, featuring a 4-inch WVGA (480 x 800) display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of expandable storage via microSD, a 5 megapixel rear and 2 megapixel front camera.The specs make the smartphone decidedly low end but at the price they’re going to be selling it for, you can’t exactly complain, as the market is steadily being conquered by cheap Chinese smartphones as well as Acer possibly attempting to face up against Microsoft’s low-end Lumia smartphones despite the latter still having more bang for buck. The Liquid M220 will also be using Windows 10, but how it will fare with such specs is currently anyone’s guess.
The Acer Liquid M220 will be hitting the market at €79 (about RM 320) in Europe, the Middle East and Africa this April with the Acer Liquid Leap+ to be begin sales later this mont.
We are in Barcelona for MWC 2015 so stay tuned for more information as it comes.
