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.
