Acer shows its 4.8-inch Android smartphone

Written by Slobodan Simic

1024x480 screen and 1GHz Snapdragon

In addition to its tablet lineup, Acer has decided to show its new flagship smartphone at its global press event in New York City. The 4.8-inch beast will pack decent power under its full aluminum body and a quite impressive screen with a 1024x480 resolution.

Although the precise specs are still unknown, the Snapdragon 1GHz CPU, an unknown version of Google's Android OS together with Acer UI, 720p video recording, and that 4.8-inch 1024x480 resolution screen is certainly enough to draw some attention.

The rest of the features include a 2MP front camera and 8MP one on the back, six-axis Gyroscope, LED edge lightning, Bluetooth 3.0, 802.11n WiFi, HDSPA and an HDMI output.

Unfortunatelly, this one is scheduled for April 2011 as well, and Acer didn't want to speculate on the price. [Well that doesn't mean we can't speculate on the price. I think it will cost $8.99. There you have it. sub.ed.]

I'd hate one. Too many of these Asian Android suckers. They can't even make their own OS so they take generic Google OS. Who's next? Fujitsu, Lenovo,.. ?

And this bad... how exactly? It seems to me that if several companies are making phones that use the same OS, and are therefore compatible with the same App Store, the consumers will benefit by being able to switch from one brand of phone to another as they see fit, instead of having to put up with the bugs that Apple... that is to say, the phone's manufacturer adds in each revision.

I'm also liking the looks of this... hm, maybe my next phone, the current one needs an overhaul, badly.
