Acer giving a lot of attention to their Android Smartphone
November 24th, 2010 - 12:10 pm ET by D. T.
Acer has officially unveiled a new Smartphone running Android, with its size putting it on the border of being a tablet.
While the name of this handset, which has already been the subject of leaks for the last few weeks, hasn’t been officially revealed by the manufacturer, we do know what it looks like and its technical characteristics.
Planned for release in April 2011, the Android powered device (version 2.2 Froyo during the presentation, although this is likely to be a later version at release) is powered by a 1 GHz Qualcomm SnapDragon processor providing HSDPA 14.4 Mbit/s and Wi-Fi 802.11n compatibility. The display is a large 4.8 inches with a screen resolution of 1 024 x 480 pixels (the first of its kind), with the device also coming with a HDMI port allowing connection to an external monitor (a television, for example) and integrates a sound system which supports the Dolby Mobile technology.

It comes with an 8 mega pixel lens with LED flash on the back, a 2 mega pixel lens on the front, a Bluetooth 3.0 module and six axes gyroscope. All of this is contained within a mono-block format with metallic finish.
We will surely find out more about this project during the next MWC show in Barcelona (Spain), where the device will be physically presented.
