Acer W4 with Windows Phone Mango announced at Computex
The W4 comes with quad-band GSM radio and support for HSPA 850/1900 or 900/2100, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1 in terms of connectivity. Photo-inclined folks are treated with a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera, which can store images on the 8 gigs of included storage. Designwise, we’re looking at some curves coming from the Acer Liquid series on this prototype of the Acer W4, while on the back a glossy blueish plastic brings the final touch. Hopefully, Acer will manage to give this handset an affordable price tag rounding up the package, but while we wait for more official information, feel free to share your opinion about the W4 in the comments below.

Nice one acer. Hopefully it sells at an affordable price since the specs is almost a year old, nothing new sans mango. I really hope WP handsets would reach out to the mid-end. Will Nokia provide the solution?

Is this a new form factor allowed by MicroSoft? I though it is mandatory for all WP7 handset to have a flash for the camera (unless it is hidden behind that cord).

People love to complain much... I'm all for high specs, but whats the use if you cannot utilize it? All Android phones are the same (roughly) even when chipsets differ greatly... Wait until 2.3 to begin to talk trash, until then your dual core works just as well as a single core.
WP7 has been fluid in all the "outdated" speced phones I've played with!! Why pump extra into it and drive up the cost if the usability does not change in accordance?
