At a media event in New York City, Acer introduced several new products, including a smartphone running Google's Android operating system. The phone, which doesn't have a name, sports a 4.8-inch LED backlit display with a 21:9 aspect ratio configuration and 1024 x 480 pixels. Acer says the device has a 1GHz processor and offers Bluetooth 3.0, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and HSDPA at 14.4Mbps radios. Other features include an 8 megapixel camera with flash, 2 megapixel secondary camera, HDMI with DLNA sharing, and Dolby Mobile. Acer doesn't have distribution deals with U.S. carriers yet, but said it is talking to them. The new smartphone is expected to reach the market by April 2011.

Full Acer Press Release

Acer next generation smartphone

100% Smartphone, 100% Tablet:

New York, November 23rd 2010 - The new Acer smartphone with the soul of a tablet perfectly combines the capabilities of a smartphone with a tablet-like format: a huge 4.8" widescreen with a 21:9 aspect ratio and a super cool chassis.

Its revolutionary design , characterized by a stretched out, thin and slightly curved shape, makes it a fascinating device that will not go unnoticed. Its full metal body, enriched by subtle wavy patterns, conveys a sense of timeless elegance. What's more, it offers a perfect fit in your hand thanks to its smoothly curved back and minimal width (64mm).
The front is entirely dominated by the extraordinary, multi-touch, high resolution 4.8" s...

"On the 21:9 screen you can watch a movie in its original format, for an engrossing cinema-like experience." 😳

There is no way I am going to supplement my 55" flatscreen with this. I would be the talk of the town if I watched a movie on the 4.8...

Which Carrier?

T-Mobile, AT&T?

It says HSDPA 14.4, so it would be interesting if it was like the 2nd or 4th hspa phone from t-mobile.
Hmm, well Tmo is bringing HSPA 21mb/s phones to market, but AT&T is only supporting 14mb/s at this time, as they ALWAYS tend to be behind everyone else, even T-Mobile.

So perhaps this beastly smatphone will end up with AT&T.

mmmmm tasty

i want that ACER Phone bad. near perfect specs, but i think i might go for the MT4G because of HSPA+ support for T-Mobile's network and because the MT4G carriers onboard wifi-calling. yea you lose an inch but you gain a foot "corny joke trumpet plays" waaa waaaaaa waaaaa waaaaaaaaaaaa
WOWOWOWOWOWOWOW!!!!!! AMAZING!!! Their laptops are actually very reliable, I expect nothing less from this tasty dish!!!
T-Mobile has a network??? 🙄

Wishing for Pentaband 3G

Why should someone have to choose between AT&T or T-Mobile. Let it have 3G on all frequencies.

Wow

Bigger than the Evo or Droid X?
But smaller than the streak.
No 4g radio. What a shame. Next spring most carriers should have added more 4g markets. Why would Acer introduce a nice looking phone with 3g phone in the spring. Not for me. I would only buy 4g phones in 2011.
...
And it's got the specs of one beastly smartphone too!!!
Yea suddenly my EVO feels small and insignificant now. 👀

No 4g Radio - LTE or WiMax? Not for me

No 4g radio. What a shame. Next spring most carriers should have added more 4g markets. Why would Acer introduce a nice looking phone with 3g phone in the spring. Not for me. I would only buy 4g phones in 2011.
A lot can change by the time this thing is ready for the market.
