Acer Unveils W4 Acer Windows Phone Device

We had heard rumors and expected some new Windows Phone devices at the Mango event last week, however, that rumor never materialized. This didn’t stop Acer, which is a new Windows Phone maker, to unveil their upcoming device at Computex this week. The new device was spotted at computex and some images were captured by a Chinese blog, zol.com.cn.

The Acer W4 will be the first device from Acer and has Mango pre-loaded, so I don’t think we will be seeing this device until fall, around the release of Mango. The W4 is a slick-looking device with specs similar to what is currently in the market for Windows Phone. The specs are:

  • 3.6-inch WVGA
  • Screen Resolution: 480×800
  • 5mp Camera with auto-focus
  • HSPA 850/1900 or 900/2100 /GSM quad band 850/900/ 1800/ 1900 MHz Support
  • Qualcomm MSM8255 running at 1GHz
  • Wifi, Bluetooth 2.1
  • DLNA Support (DMC)
  • Windows Phone Mango
  • 8GB Storage

The phone looks really nice, but I’m hoping for manufacturers to really push some of the specs for future Windows Phone devices and also some low-end devices, which would appeal to some users.
