Computer manufacturer Acer has moved into handsets with a new line of Windows Mobile-powered smartphones, which shows how close all these fancy new handsets are to full-on PCs. Remember all those rumours of Dell making their own smartphone?
Mobile News has model numbers and specs for all four handsets:
The HSDPA M900 is a slider with a QWERTY keyboard and a 3.8-inch WVGA touch-screen. Other features include a fingerprint sensor, GPS, FM radio, voice recording/command, and a five-megapixel camera with LED flash.
The F900 has a 3.8-inch WVGA display with a touch keyboard, a 3.2-megapixel camera with LED flash, GPS, FM radio, voice recording/command and microSDHC memory expansion. The home screen is customisable with widgets and favourite apps, and the device is HSPA/Wi-Fi enabled, with an IE6 browser.
Then we have the X960, a 3G handset with a 2.8-inch VGA screen, five way navigation pad and a widget-based user interface. It also has GPS, a 3.2-megapixel camera and a microSD slot to expand memory.
The DX900 (right) is a dual-SIM smartphone with a 2.8-inch VGA display, touch-screen, 3.2-megapixel camera and HSDPA support.
The pictures don't look half bad, and the spec lists are pretty impressive. A nice mix of business and consumer features, we'd say.
