Acer launches 5 GPS-packin’ smartphones in Singapore

acer all Acer launches 5 GPS packin smartphones in Singapore

Acer is continuing its bid to extend its netbook dominance to the smartphone market with the launch of 5 new smartphones in Singapore.  All of the handsets have similar basic features including GPS and some variant of the Windows Mobile 6.1 operating system.  But each handset is built to cater to a slightly different market segment as first announced at Mobile World Congress earlier this year.

The 2.8-inch LCD touchscreen-equipped Acer DX650 doesn’t offer HSDPA connectivity, instead opting for a tri-band GSM/EDGE connection.  But it adds in an extra 1.7-inch OLED display on its backside.  The 2.8-inch touchscreen-equipped DX900 has dual-SIM card functionality enabling users to separate business and personal information, and has both a 1.3 megapixel autofocus camera and a front-facing VGA camera for video calls.  The Acer X960 is definitely business-oriented, also featuring a 2.8-inch touchscreen display, 3.2 megapixel camera, 7.2 Mbps HSDPA connectivity, and an FM transmitter.  The iPhone look-alike F900 has a larger 3.8-inch display, and the

M900 also has a 3.8-inch display, 5 megapixel camera, and even a biometric fingerprint reader.  All five phones also have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support.  Acer said this morning in Singapore that the first five handsets will be released in the first half of the year, priced between $397 and $530.  The company plans to release another four smartphones in the second half of 2009.
