Since so many people are clamoring for a second or third mobile phone, Acer has been rumored to be in talks with their rivals. Earlier it was rumors of Acer making a huge release of the revolutionary Cobra mobile phone that led to the market hysteria. In recent times, some people have been hearing reports that Acer would launch the LTE+ Phones in the U.S. to compete with the fierce competition of Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile, and Sprint.
On the other hand, Acer is also in talks with T-Mobile to ensure that its customers are satisfied. However, there is no confirmation from T-Mobile yet.
Although a rumor, there is no doubt that T-Mobile is indeed in talks with Acer. T-Mobile is known to be aggressive in terms of pricing and launching new phones in its own image. It is believed that T-Mobile is aiming to make its handsets the most highly-priced in the market. T-Mobile has been successful in this regard, as the iPhone launched at a much higher price than the others.
In addition, it has been reported that Acer may be involved in the BlackBerry device business. Although the discussions with T-Mobile haven't been finalized, there is nothing to doubt the fact that the BlackBerry brand will soon take off.
If the reports are true, then T-Mobile is indeed the biggest threat to Acer. As you can see, they are in fierce competition, and it's not an easy task to beat them. To survive, they will have to make bigger changes.
The one thing that makes Acer such a worthy opponent is that they have such a low price compared to their competitors. As I have mentioned, Acers prices their phones so low that most of their handset models cost less than $200. Many people like buying phones at this price and they can't get enough of it.
Acer has been criticized for this as well. When it comes to selling their phones at such low prices, it seems that it would be difficult for them to compete with the more established players in the market. Most experts agree that in the end, Acer will have to merge with another mobile phone company.
You should expect this change to come into effect, as at least three of the mobile phone makers are expected to merge soon. With this said, the leading players will most likely offer a similar product and price.
Acer phones are a great buy as they can save you a lot of money compared to other companies. Since so many people are buying them, Acer needs to do something about it and give customers what they are looking for.
As mentioned earlier, the merger of mobile phone companies could mean big changes to the industry. Even though it would be good for customers to have cheaper phones, it would also lead to higher costs for the manufacturers.
Apple has already made changes in the industry and will continue to do so. So if Acer decides to join the T-Mobile company, it would be wise for them to also follow in the footsteps of Apple and get out of the Nokia mobile phone business as soon as possible.
