Acer F1,C1,L1 and E1 rolling out under different names?
Back at MWC 2009, Acer stated F1, C1, L1 and E1 were merely code names and that it was quite likely the corresponding handsets hit the shelves under different names. A blog called Clove has posted information that reveals the names and release dates of the four devices as well as parts of their specifications. They roll out on 6 October and all four will be running Windows Mobile 6.5. So, here are the names of the smartphones, at least according to Clove:
- The Acer F1 will appear as the Acer neoTouch and feature 1GHz Qualcomm 8520 processor, huge 3.8-inch WVGA display, 5-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, GSP and support for HSPA.
- The Acer C1 has been renamed to the Acer beTouch E100 and according to Clove, will be more affordable, just 12mm thin, feature 528 MHz Qualcomm 7225 CPU, 3.2-inch display, 2-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, GPS and able to run on HSDPA networks.
- The Acer L1 gets the name the AcerbeTouch E200 and looks like a stylish slider equipped with 3-inch QVGA display, HSPD support, built-in Wi-Fi and GPS and has the same CPU as the beTouch E100, i.e. 528 MHz Qualcomm 7225
- The Acer E1 baptised as the AcerbeTouch E101 will allegedly be the most affordable of the four. According to the information posted by Clove, it will be 12mm thin and aimed at fans of social networks. It will come with 3.2-inch display, 2-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi and GPS, but without support for 3G. Its processor will be, yet again, 528 MHz Qualcomm 7225.
Clove has always been a reliable source of information, so we do not doubt its credibility. Still, remember this are loose details, so we cannot be entirely sure if the information is accurate or not, at least until Acer has made an official announcement. Anyway, it seems 6 October will prove to be a really interesting day, so stay tuned for updates.
