Acer are miles ahead of the field in computer engineering.
Let's face it, phone's used to be fairly simple equipment lacking in power and performance.
These days, these machines have become power hungry, gpu stressing all out and out media machines.
Along with this comes the issues of extra heat, power consumption and so on which ultimately takes decades of experience to master and effectively create simple solutions for.
Apple were a good example of the power these big companies have, and not to mention the man power and resources!
However, Acer have chosen in this case the open-source user friendly and widely compatible OS from Google: Android.
The two go together hand in hand offering the user the best possible experience, whilst at the same time offering the consumer options of customisation and user interaction one simply could not achieve through the closed iOS.
All in all, I really think that Acer have hit the nail on the head with this one, my only gripe is that they promised release Nov 2010... and here I am still waiting.
But like they say, you have to brew it longer for a finer taste!!!
Can't wait. :P

I have acer tavelmate 290 for 6 years and i am still using it. Now all my friends have acers, no one have any problem. Acer is a hell of the brand and it returns all the money you give for it. I am sure that it is the same with their mobile phones.

Companies will always come out with a bad unit one time or the other, HP, Sony, etc. Happens to all of them.

My old Acer 1692 WLMi is 5 years old now, and still works like day 1 hardware wise (except for the monitor, that has dimmed to 140cd/m^2 throughout the years).

Recently bought a 3820TG Timeline X and its possibly the most well built laptop I've seen in a long time.

Amit and Ani,

lolz, like i said, i hv nth against Acer but got the comments from friends who sell laptops. they dont mean it's drop dead bad but when compared to other brands, they do hv higher return-warranty percentage. this is supposedly due to the cheaper hardware that they uses, at least that's what i know from Malaysia.

and about the Acer brand name in phones, what i meant was that they are virtually an unknown in the phone segment. for instance, u know what u'll be getting with Samsung & HTC but an Acer? i do hope they make this good and i'll have no problem owning them when they are officially out (though i wonder will they have it in Malaysia, lolz!).... Desire HD is already available in many countries but it's only coming soon in 1 of our major carriers! ^_^
