DigiTimes reports that new mobile handset vendor Acer has shifted its development policy to focus more on the Android platform, with at least half of new models launched in 2010 to be based on the Google platform. The report adds that the vendor will still develop Windows Mobile-based smartphones.
A report from iSuppli notes that while Windows Mobile is expected to fall to the No. 3 position among worldwide smartphone operating systems in 2009, appearing on 27.7 million smartphones, that number is expected to climb to 67.9 million smartphones by 2013, boosting Windows back into the No. 2 spot by 2012.
