In the quietest fashion, Acer announced the Windows Phone 7.5 running Allegro handset. The company's first device running Microsoft's mobile OS aims (as always) for a piece of the mid-range market.

In terms of specs, you get a 1GHz single-core Qualcomm CPU and 8GB of built-in storage. The screen is a 3.6" LCD unit with WVGA resolution. A 5MP camera with LED flash can be found on the back of the device. The usual connectivity suite is on board. The Allegro is powered by a 1300 mAh battery. Its measures stand at 116 x 59 x 13mm, and its weight is 126 grams.

The smartphone will hit the shelves in France mid-November in the above shown color schemes. In case you are interested, it will cost you 299.

WP7 has great potential: full ecosystem to work with (windows8 + winphone) deep pockets (nokia + microsoft) if they can consistently polish up winphone it wouldnt be surprising if it eats up huge market share to do that: more 3rd part...
