Acer joins the Open Handset Alliance, officially promises an Android phone for Q4 2009

It’s not the first time that we’re hearing about Acer’s plans to release an Android smartphone, but this time it’s as official as it gets.

The Taiwan-based company has just joined Google’s Open Handset Alliance, making a step forward to delivering an Android device by the year’s end (sometime in the fourth quarter).

Of course, Acer didn’t unveil any details about how exactly its first Android smartphone will be. Well, if it’s something like that thin F1 presented a few months ago, I’m sure many Android fans will not hesitate to buy it.

As a reminder, the Open Handset Alliance currently has more than 40 members, including (besides Google): Samsung, LG, Motorola, Sony Ericsson, HTC, Asus, Huawei, Toshiba, Telefonica and Vodafone.
