After Acer bought the Glofiish brand, the company has been readying itself to launch two rebadged Glofiish mobile phones to get its mobile life underway. The Acer DX650 and X960 smartphones may appear to some users as a disappointment. They might have expected more from the company whose previous business success has rested in the world of computers. Others will see the new handsets as the first step in a possibly more exicting range to come.
The DX650, a portly design, is a dual-sided device. On one side, is a 2.8-inch QVGA touchscreen on which you will see the popular Windows Mobile operating system. On the other is a 1.27-inch OLED screen that also includes a full numeric keypad, according to the Engadget website. Other features include HSDPA for fast data transfer, GPS for location finding, microSD for memory expansion, long distance Internet connection via 802.11b/g WiFi and short range connections via Bluetooth.
The X960 features a 2.8-inch 640 x 480 pixel display, HSDPA, WiFi, GPS, microSD and a 3.2MP camera with flash. European releases are expected but release dates and price details for the UK were, as yet, unavailable.
