Acer is set to streamline its operations and focus only on the best products it has reports DigiTimes. The chairman of Acer, JT Wang, has announced that the company will be cutting its product line down significantly in 2012. According to Wang, the existing product line will be cut down by 2/3 of the size it is today.
I would bet with the netbook still falling from grace, those will be some of the most noticeable casualties of the cut back. I would also wager that some of the underperforming Androidtablets and notebooks would be cut as well.
With many firms focusing on tablets and Ultrabooks I expect that will factor big in the Acer line after the cut back. Acer claims that the cut back will not affect outsourcing volumes to upstream ODMs. I'd like to see how they are going to cut their line by that much and still maintain the same upstream load.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
