Acer intros new 4.8 inch Android smartphone, new tablets

Remember that interesting Acer Android handset we saw not long ago alongside the Liquid Metal and an unknown tablet? Acer has officially announced it a few hours ago, although – weird enough – it didn’t give it a name yet.

The new handset features a really big display: a 4.8 inch one with 1024 x 480 pixels (21:9 aspect ratio), that’s why Acer presents it as “100% Smartphone, 100% Tablet.”

The device has a full metal body with “subtle wavy patterns” and further features HSDPA, Wi-Fi, DLNA, Dolby Mobile sound, Bluetooth 3.0, 8MP photo camera with LED flash, 2MP front-facing camera (for video-calling, of course), and 1GHz Snapdragon processor.

Acer plans to launch the new smartphone in April next year – which means the handset should run Android Gingerbread. Until then, take a look at the handset’s official photos:

Also unveiled today are two Acer Android tablets. Like the smartphone, the tablets are unnamed, too, and they will be commercially available in April 2011 for unknown prices.

One of the tablets boasts a 10 inch, 1280 x 800 pixels display, and a 1GHz processor, while the other one comes with a 7 inch, 1280 x 800 pixels screen, and a 1.2GHz processor. They both feature 3G, Wi-Fi, HMDI-out, and cameras. More details as we get them.
