Acer will keep Android pure and won’t try to 'fix' it

Tablet and PC maker Acer declared this week that it will embrace the default version of Android and would not seek to modify or customize the operating system.

The Taiwanese manufacturer recently spoke with TechRadar to explain some of its reasons for choosing to keep Android as pure as possible, rather than developing its own user interface for its products.

Because Android is open source, manufacturers can customize or tweak the Android experience to their own devices, often to the chagrin of customers.

Acer’s biggest motivation may be the time and money needed to keep the UI up to date as Android moves forward.
