Acer has announced the launch of its AcerCloud service in Europe, with a client coming preloaded on all new laptops and desktop computers in the UK, France, Germany, and Italy. Presenting at the IFA trade show in Berlin, the Taiwanese manufacturer cautioned that the service — an own-brand competitor to the likes of Dropbox, Google Drive, and Microsoft's SkyDrive — is still in beta. An AcerCloud Portal app has been available in Google's Play Store since at least June, but has not been functional.
