A landmark event took place at the recently concluded Computex Taipei 2011: Acer has demonstrated to her its first smartphone running Windows Phone 7.1 Mango. Novelty designation W4.
The device is based on a single-chip single-core platform Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 - exactly the same used in smartphones HTC Incredible S, Desire S, Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, Xperia Neo and some other mobile devices. The equipment of the new items include a capacitive touch screen 3.6-inch diagonal 480 x 800 pixels, 8 GB of flash memory, 5 megapixel camera resolution, adapters, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1 EDR.
Dimensions of the device - 116 x 59 x 12 mm. The smartphone comes with a lithium-ion battery 1300 mAh. Whereas not the most outstanding characteristics can be assumed that the price of Acer W4 will be significantly lower than the price of flagship smartphones running WP7. As for launch date news, that is, roughly, mid-late fall. By the way, then the same must be some more new smartphones running Windows Phone 7 - as we reported earlier.
