Acer has just announced one of the most peculiar, yet sweet sounding Android smartphones of the season. Packing the highest resolution display in the Android realm sans tablets, of course, but with a 4.8-inch screen, the new Acer smartphone may as well be competing with those instead.
The new handset doesn’t even have an official name yet, but we already know we wouldn't mind taking it for a spin even as it is.
The new metal-clad Acer smartphone leaked a few weeks ago, but only now that it’s officially announced we realize what a beast it actually is. The Froyo-running device comes with a huge 4.8-inch display with a resolution of 1024 x 480 pixels (that's a pretty wide aspect ratio, if you ask us).
The new Acer handset is powered by a 1 GHz Snapdragon CPU and can capture 8 megapixel stills and 720p video. The highlights list continues with Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, 14.4 Mbps HSDPA support and HDMI port. The final known specs include a six-axis gyroscope+accelerometer combo, LED flash and a 2 megapixel front-facing camera.
The price is yet to be revealed, but we will certainly be waiting eagerly for its launch in April 2011.
funny how the cell phone size alone has gone from VERY big (huge) to VERY small (I still keep the Samsung E880) back to big now haha.
my question is who is going to be the carrier att, t mobile (please) Verizon or sprint
I know most people like the smaller screens but I prefer the larger ones especially if there is no physical keyboard. The larger screens are just easier to type on in my experience. I have to say this phone sounds like it will be awesome! Can't wait...
