Acer Stream smartphone announced

Just when you thought there wasn't room for anymore high-end Android handsets on the market, along comes another. Specifically the Acer Stream, which certainly looks a contender, possibly up there with the HTC Desire.

In terms of hardware, the Stream offers up a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon porcessor, 512MB of RAM and a a 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen, that screen able to display 1.67 million colours as well as boasting a contrast ratio of 2000:1. Very sharp.

Connectivity is no slouch either, with high-speed HSDPA data, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and of course, GPS for navigation, while a 5-megapixel camera with video (720p) should cover things adequately on the imaging front. Indeed, if you capture something in that low-end HD, you can play it back on your HD-ready telly thanks to the built-in HDMI connection.

Other points of note include 2GB of internal memory, a slot for your microSD card, pre-installed/easy access clients for the likes of Facebook and Twitter and of course, all those Google-friendly Android goodies. Maybe an upgrade to 2.2 before launch? Who knows. All on a handset just 11.2mm thick (or thin) too.

The one thing we don't know is UK network availability as yet. That's likely to become clearer in the next few weeks, but we would expect pricing to be on a par with the higher-end HTC smartphones.
