Acer Stream to hit the UK on August 3 (£399.99 unlocked via Expansys)
Acer’s newest Android smartphone, the high-end Stream, will be available in the UK starting next month.
Online retailer Expansys says it will sell the handset unlocked on August 3, for £399.99 (475 Euros or $607). It looks like the retailer will have exclusivity on the device in the UK for the beginning.
Announced in May, the Acer Stream runs Android 2.1 and uses Acer’s Touch 3D UI (version 4.0). It features some really nice stuff, like a 3.7 inch WVGA AMOLED display, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3.5mm headset jack, Dolby Mobile sound enhancement, HDMI port, 5MP autofocus camera, 720p video recording (at 24fps), 512MB ROM, 512MB RAM, 2GB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support.
I assume the Stream will be updated to Android 2.2 Froyo not long after launch, in which case the £399.99 might be worth it. Or… not?
