    The service will also allow users to purchase movies on their smartphone, tablet or computer and watch them on multiple devices.

    AcerCloud will also have the ability to remotely wake up devices that are sleeping and synch with them.

    The service will be available in the second quarter of this year on all Acer-powered PCs.
