First WP Acer handsets to be launched in fall 2011
This would coincide with the first major WP update, which, according to some sources, will be named "Windows Phone 7.5". For now, this update is simply known by its internal name, which is said to be Mango, and it will enrich Microsoft's mobile OS with some goodies like multitasking, HTML5 and a browser based on IE9.
If this information holds water, it would mean that Acer will go head-to-head with Nokia, since it's widely anticipated that the Finnish giant will release its first WP handset in the same period.
More details about the upcoming Windows Phone-powered Acer phones are not available, but you can still check our hands-on with the Acer ICONIA SMART - the Taiwanese manufacturer's soon-to-be-launched 4.8-inch Android heavyweight.
