Acer F1 set for 6 October launch
Acer’s F1 mobile phone is due to be launched in the UK on 6 October.
The handset will cost £295 – a relatively low price considering the high quality of its reported features.
Based on Microsoft’s new operating system, Windows Mobile 6.5, the Acer F1 has a range of specifications including fast 1GHz Snapdragon CPU via Qualcomm, a 3.8-inch touch-screen display, an attendant accelerometer for screen changes from portrait to landscape and quad-band GSM, along with fast data transfers via HSDPA.
The device also has Wi-Fi, a five-megapixel camera and a 3.5mm headphone socket. Acer is planning to market the handset aggressively, according to reports.
