Acer W4 runs Windows Phone Mango, doesn’t impress
Acer, one of Microsoft’s new Windows Phone hardware partners (alongside Fujitsu and ZTE), has showcased what seems to be its very first WP-based handset: the Acer W4.
Running Windows Phone Mango, the Acer W4 features a 3.6 inch WVGA display, HSPA (900/2100 or 850/1900 – perfect for AT&T, isn’t it?), Wi-Fi, DLNA, Bluetooth 2.1, a 5MP camera, 8GB of internal memory, and a single-core 1GHz processor. Upon seeing these specs, I immediately thought: hey, someone should remind Acer we’re in 2011 now, not in 2010. That aside, the W4 doesn’t look bad at all:
Most likely, the Acer W4 will be released sometime in the fourth quarter of the year, when many other Windows Phone Mango handsets – including some made by Nokia – should be out.
