Acer smartphones for free in the U.S?
Acer performed really well at this year’s MWC in Barcelona. It presented a total of 9 smartphones with the Windows Mobile operating system, as well as a cute interface, of which we’ve given you our first impressions. The intriguing portfolio, however, does not guarantee high sales, especially on a flooded market like the U.S. one. In order to assure a good start, Acer will rely on agreements with the carriers, which will offer its smartphones for free, but on contract. According to Acer’s Smartphone Unit President, what is alluring for the carriers are the netbooks, which the company already has. Users can expect Acer’s Windows Mobile smartphones in Q4 2009, but it hasn’t been cleared up yet with which carriers it will be available. Still, we can presume that those might be AT&T and T-Mobile, since the units that were introduced were all GSM devices.
