Photos of Acer phone leak
What is believed to be the first look at the upcoming Acer smarpthone has been leaked on Tuesday, although there are no new clues as to the phone's specifications and features. The first indication of Acer's entry into the phone market came last week, when the company extended an invitation to a press conference on the evening of February 16th, right before the start of the Mobile World Congress in Spain. The low-quality photos do reveal a full QWERTY keyboard and an advanced swiveling design for the reported touchscreen.
As the phone is not powered on in the photos and the source hasn't reported any more info, there is no indication of whether it will run a Windows Mobile or Android operating system. To be competitive with the current line of touchscreen smartphones, the Acer phone is expected to include features such as a GPS sensor, 3G data network access and a high-megapixel-count camera at a minimum.
