This is my first foray into Windows Mobile Phones as such. My opinion about Win-Mo phones was not too good to say the least!!
Rs. 9000/- (With bill !!)
Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional !!
Very light weight phone
Large Screen with decent visibility
Full fledged Pocket Office
Fast Processor (Could have been faster though ;) )
Flawless Activesync!! (Push-mail ROCKS!!!)
Gmail and Hotmail services setup in a jiffy!!
Conversation view for SMS as well!!
Hand writing recognition is the best that i have seen (running mind you!!)
IPod style Jog Dial ;) (Although it suffers from over sensitivity)
Dedicated hardware button to toggle Silent and General Modes
The best Speaker Phone yet..
Memory Card is NOT provided in the box
Touch screen becomes un-responsive at times :(
No T9 support (Yes.. yes I know it is a qwerty, but everyone needs a spell checker now and then!)
Obviously No Wi-Fi or 3G
Does not have a "Recent Contacts" list when sending messages.. Phonebook here i come :(
The battery really DIES when Activesync is on :( (1/2 a day max)
Single Port for Headset and Charging (A real pain with this battery)
Haven't been able to decipher whether this set has a Landscape QWERTY or not :(
Most of the times "Back" takes you all the way to the Home screen :(
Bluetooth really acts up (Not able to use it consistently)
Overall this is an excellent phone for the Price paid. I would be happier if there was a better battery option!

i want it for my business purpose. interstd kinda in unlimited calls and phonebook, and office suite.
battery and wlan is no problem for me.
should i buy this phone or not???
battery and wlan is no problem for me. how is pc suite for this phone, rest other featurs i hve seen. and am much interested in its more office features as i want it for my business purpose.
kindly suggest clearly.
this has a touchscreen of resistive type , a terrible touch technology i got it for 11000 from retail and then after a 1 day nightmare i exchanged for a samsung monte .nothing can beat a samungas it has a capacitive screen and gives a much better touch experience ...
but acer is twice as advanced in technology and ...... bad touch experience . so choose wisely .
Got one yesterday, it is the most complicated phone I have ever owned. You have to use the stylus, it is long winded to use and I hate it. Will be putting it on ebay in the next hour. Do not buy it, its terrible to use but looks great.
ok, i have the nokia 5800 xpress and I hate it. It is ALWAYS freezing, and has not been a very good phone for me. My friend told me that I DONT want the acer e101. need to know some other opinions about this!
Im a potential Buyer of this phone. Someone asked a question how much GB Sd card it can support I heard from the sales man it can support upto 16 GB.
From today morning i m unable to hear voice nor the other person talking to me hear my voice. What may the problem. Kindly help.
does anyone else have trouble charging this phone from a standard 12v mini usb car charger? I have three of these for my guys and they all cannot charge via this method. Currently they are using xda in car chargers but surley this shouldnt be a problem? Also, has anyone had the issue where they cannot recieve calls if the battery is only at 2 bars? I am able to make calls and send and receve data, but not receive calls. Any ideas?
Anonymous, 02 Jan 2010I also purchased this phone, but feel that the battery drains off pretty fast. If i charge it ... moreEven i have faced the issue of battery draining out fast. I charge it at night for about 2 hours and by morning it shows me about 60-70%, i have my GPRS turned off but still shows that much of battery drain though at night i am not using the phone. Acer should do something about this.
model is good but the company should add some more features in it!!!!!it's still incomplete...
