Reuters reporting – via The Financial Times – that Taiwanese computer company Acer has asked tech giant Microsoft to reconsider its planned venture into the tablet market. According to Acer Chairman and Chief Executive J.T. Wang, said Microsoft’s plans to launch its own “Surface” tablet would result in “negative for the worldwide ecosystem” in computing.

“We have said think it over. Think twice. It will create a huge negative impact for the ecosystem and other brands may take a negative reaction. It is not something you are good at so please think twice,” Wang quoted.

Microsoft back in June only announced its “Surface” tablet, which is 9.3mm thick, features a full-size USB 2 port, beveled edges canted at 22 degrees and weighs 1.5 lbs. The casing is made of magnesium and Microsoft calls Surface, a ‘full PC’.
