Acer to announce a Windows 10 smartphone at MWC 2015, plus a new Android-based Jade handset
While Acer is far from being one of the world's leading smartphone makers, in the last few years the company (best known for its laptops and desktop PCs) has constantly released various handsets, most of them running Android. Acer also made a few Windows Mobile smartphones (before Windows Phone existed), but those weren't exactly successful. This year, however, Acer will try its luck again - with a Windows 10 handset.

According to Focus Taiwan, Acer will announce its first Windows 10 smartphone at MWC 2015 next week. While there's no word on what specs the new smartphone will have, we heard that the device might be a low-end, or mid-range one.

Of course, since Windows 10 won't be properly released before summer (as Microsoft still has to polish the OS), Acer's new Windows-based handset is expected to be available starting the second half of the year.

In addition to announcing a Windows 10 handset, Acer also plans to unveil a new Android smartphone from its Jade series at MWC next week, plus a new wearable device. We'll let you know more about Acer's upcoming products as soon as they're announced.

P.S.: what you're seeing above is a mock-up based on the Acer Liquid Jade S (which in reality runs Android, not Windows, as our quickly made mock-up is suggesting).
