AnonD-456829, 22 Dec 2016Acer and mobiles! From when?They had a good series of smartphones from Liquid E500 (Triple SIM) to Liquid Jade series. They were all quite good but the lack of timely updates along with lack of sufficient brand differentiation made it a no-go for most people (in India).

When you're in a race to the bottom sometimes there's usually only 1 or 2 winners, and everyone else goes bankrupt and/or loses a lot of money and a lot of jobs are lost in the whole process. They're the first to realize it's just not worth the trouble and that they will not "win" the race so they're dropping out now before it costs them a ton of money. Smart, actually.

I'm sure Indians are actually happy about this as they hate all companies that don't want to sell their products to them for anything 10% below what it costs to make. I can only hope all international mobile brands exit and leave them all to buy their own junk phones.

Acer Liquid Jade 2 - still not selling anywhere, and that's good, because - this is already old phone. Acer marketing is extremely impressive

Do people use Acer phones I see none in my country?
