Acer DX650 and X960

Acer's smartphone plans at Mobile World Congress will involve at least two handsets, if a pair of leaks are accurate. The DX650 would be a unique dual-sided phone which, like the Samsung UpStage, puts a dedicated number pad and small screen (here an OLED) on the back to make calls easier. The Acer offering is a true smartphone with a 2.8-inch touchscreen and Windows Mobile 6.1 providing full app support on the phone's front.

Based on technology picked up with the buyout of E-TEN, the DX650 should also have GPS and a camera; 3G over HSPA and Wi-Fi are assumed, but not confirmed.

The X960 should be a more conventional 2.8-inch touchscreen phone and is known to have a fast 533MHz ARM processor as well as a front-facing camera for video calls to complement a back 3.2-megapixel shooter. It too runs Windows Mobile and is known to carry HSPA-based 3G, GPS and Wi-Fi.

Launch details aren't yet available but should be made public with the start of Mobile World Congress next week. [via SlashGear]
