What all beTouch models have in common is they have been designed as affordable cell phones and feature 528MHz Qualcomm 7225 processors. beTouch E100 and E101 are equipped with 3.2-inch screens and the interesting thing about the latter is it´s aimed at social networking fans and comes without HSDPA data transfer speeds.
The third, the Acer beTouch E200, is a stylish slider with 3-inch QVGA display and support for HSDPA.
The Acer newTouch is a high-end device announced at MWC 2009. The relevant details posted by Clove reveal the handsets is significantly superior to the beTouch lineup. The Acer newTouch is equipped with 1GHz Qualcomm 8520 processor, large 3.8-inch WVGA screen, 5-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, GPS and supports HSPA. These specifications make the device a heavy-weight player that is certain to give both the Toshiba TG01 and still unannounced HTC HD2 (Leo) a good run for their money.
Clove has been a contractual business partner of Acer and so far, they have never provided inaccurate information. We believe the news is definitely credible, so we are waiting see an official press release by Acer that we hope will reveal more information about the above-mentioned handsets. Don´t forget to keep an eye on our news section tomorrow, because this is the day when Windows Mobile 6.5 rolls out officially and we expect to see the announcements of quite a few exciting devices that so far, we have only heard rumours about.
Note: AT&T has already released their first cell phone running Windows Mobile 6.5 – the HTC PURE. More information about it is available here.
*UPDATE*: Acer has confirmed the information and the four Windows Phones are now official. You can check our Hands on with the Acer beTouch E200 now.
