To quote Emperor Palpatine from 'Episode VI: Return of the Jedi', "You will pay for your lack of vision."

"The erosion of the company’s netbook market has forced Acer to push out their own line of Android-based tablets"
So, if it's a fad and they expect customers to go back to netbooks, then why are they developing their own tablet?

Seems as though the iPad phenomenon is revealing these companies' true colors:

Top management caught with their collective pants down, their free ride (sitting on laurels of easy earnings selling cheap crap to stupid crap-hungry customers) is suddenly over.

Realizing the seriousness of their current situations: the relative difficulty of coming up with truly viable competitors to the iPad at anywhere near comparable selling prices, their "craziness levels" proportional to that "seriousness."
