A rift is growing between Microsoft and its long-time PC partners who are upset over the software giant’s decision to make its own tablet, the Surface, which goes on sale later this month, said Acer CEO JT Wang in an exclusive interview.
“They are doing something to kill the whole ecosystem,” Wang said of the decades-long partnership between the PC makers like his Taipei-based company and Microsoft. The Surface will compete with Acer’s Iconia tablet.
“They have all this cash,” he said. “They could kill everybody.”
