Acer to sell Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphones for less than €49

Acer, one of the latest major companies to enter the smartphone business, will apparently offer Windows Mobile 6.5 devices for no more than €49.

That’s about $62 and, well, I don’t think there are many WM handsets out there to have such a low price.

The news comes shortly after some reports that were saying the Taiwanese company plans to offer free smartphones in the US, for those who buy them via mobile operators, on contract agreements.

According to The Register, two of the cheap WM 6.5 smartphones will be Acer C1 and Acer E1, which are obviously entry-level devices (although their specs are not known for the moment).

Most probably, the C1 and E1 will come for under €49 only together with a contract agreement, so it’s possible for them to be among the free smartphones promised for the US.

The C1 and E1 should be available in several color versions, sometime in the third quarter of 2009.
