Windows on ARMComputerworld - Acer plans to produce Windows RT devices at some point, according to a company spokeswoman. That statement comes after Acer's CEO blasted Microsoft for building the Surface RT tablet. On Monday, Microsoft excluded Acer from its list of Windows RT device makers.

"Acer plans to incorporate Windows RT into our product roadmap, but we have not yet confirmed the timing of our product launches," an Acer spokeswoman told Computerworld today.

In June, Acer President Jim Wong said the Taiwan-based manufacturer would release ARM-based devices running Windows RT in the first quarter of 2013. He didn't specify it would be a tablet, calling it a "portable device."
