Acer Holo 360 is an Android camera with phone capabilities

Acer had a big event in New York City earlier this week where it introduced a broad range of products including laptops, smartwatches, projectors, notebooks, and monitors.

Among the plethora of new products that Acer unveiled this week, there's one that the company hasn't talked too much. The reason might be the fact that this device is still a prototype unit, or many Acer is not yet sure whether or not it will make it available on the market.

The device is called Acer Holo 360, and it's 360-degree camera that runs Android. On top of that, users can make or take calls, so the Holo 360 doubles as a smartphone when needed.

Aside from the fact that it features a touchscreen and packs both LTE and 4G LTE capabilities, there's not much else that we know about Acer's Holo 360 camera. We don't even know what version of Android it runs.

Luckily, we do have a picture of it that shows the Holo 360 camera while hold in hand. It's not a big device at all, as it looks more like a pocket-sized snapper rather than a phablet that doubles as a camera.

Not a bad idea. Would be a good primary device while on a scenic vacation.

Primary? No way. Nobody wants cellular radios draining their camera life and reducing the amount of shots a camera can take. That being said, I would not mind having this capability as something I could turn on when needed. It would make editing and uploading photos easier once it was back at the hotel/home and charging.

Interesting!!! Let this camera be with OIS - optical image stabilization.

Umm, it's a 360 camera. So OIS would never work, because one camera is in front and the other camera is exactly 180 degrees on the other side. Now EIS or basically software stabilization could work. Or basically post processing stabilization software could work.

Can electronic image stabilization and software stabilization compete with optical image stabilization, Mr sgodsell? Because, Google Pixel/Pixel XL has WoW camera, they have only electronic image stabilization, not optical.
