Acer beTouch E210 is an Android-powered touchscreen QWERTY candybar, will hit the UK on March 11
If you have gotten a bit tired of the onslaught of slab/slate-type full-touchscreen-and-that’s-it devices that have been announced seemingly one per hour at CES 2011 in Las Vegas, the Acer beTouch E210 might be a phone to consider. It does have an interesting (yet not unseen before) form factor, it runs Android (was there any phone announced during CES that doesn’t?) and is set to become available in the UK on March 11. Pricing is unknown at this point, but it will clearly either be officially announced or leaked before the handset starts selling.
On to specs, then. The beTouch E210 is powered by Android 2.2 Froyo, and, as you can see, has both a full physical QWERTY keyboard and a touchscreen. The screen size is 2.6 inches, and the whole phone is rather compact, having a length of only 116mm and weighing just 110 grams.
Under the hood is a 416 MHz processor, ROM size is 512 MB and RAM is 256 MB. The Acer beTouch E210 has a 1300 mAh battery and is HSPA capable, it has a 3.2-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, a microSD card slot, 3.5 mm headset jack, FM tuner, G-sensor and compass.
