Acer F1 may come in September powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon CPU

Acer F1, one of the smartphones said to come with Windows Mobile 6.5 on board, will apparently be launched in September 2009.

What’s more interesting is that, according to AllAboutPhones.nl, which participated at an Acer press event held in the Netherlands, the F1 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor – like Toshiba’s ultra-thin TG01.

However, unlike TG01’s CPU, Acer F1’s processor will only run at 800MHz, not at 1000MHz. The new smartphone will also have ATI graphics and an Acer Suite 2.0 UI, which, apparently, is similar to HTC’s TouchFlo 3D interface.

The retail price of Acer F1 is said to be of  €560 (about $758). Kind of expensive, isn’t it?

    We were at this event as well and the reason we didn't write an article about it is that this concept was already shown at MWC and that it's a concept. This device will not reach the shops at all or it will take many years to come.
