AcerCloud service

What is AcerCloud service? The answer is simple. It is Acer's implementation of Apple iCloud. You can store/share pictures, documents and multimedia on/from the cloud. 

  1. Store and share pictures
  2. Pics taken on the phone are streamed to PCs and other devices via 
  3. Photos in PCs will be store permanently while those on other devices will have access for 30 days. Can be either downloded to these devices to store permanently or lose access after 30 days.
AcerCloud Docs:
  1. Save sales docs on a PC and the docs are streamed to other devices
  2. Accessibility is similar to that of PicStream
The following images explain how the sharing/storing works:

Acer Inc. President Jim Wong stated, "AcerCloud not only provides the simplicity and efficiency when accessing and sharing data, but it's also free with a new Acer PC and gives our users peace-of-mind, knowing that their data is safely transferred in a personal cloud space."

AcerCloud service will be launched in Q2 2012.
