Acer's stunner to be launched in April '11

Acer isn't exactly a name that quickly comes to mind when think of smartphones, but the company is looking to change that rather quickly with a new Android-based device.

The unnamed smartphone sports a huge 4.8" display with a generous 1024x480 resolution (21:9 aspect ratio). If the large screen isn't enough to impress, the smartphone also features a full metal body with subtle engraved patterns.

When it comes to hardware specs, all the usual suspects are here including a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 8MP rear camera (with LED flash), 2MP front-facing camera, HDMI-out, and an accelerometer/gyroscope.

Connectivity duties are handled bier HSDPA, 802.11n, and the emerging Bluetooth 3.0 standard.

Acer calls its latest device "100% Smartphone, 100% Tablet", and you'll be able to find out more details closer to its April 2011 launch according to Engadget.

Think of it as a PDA with ability to make calls.

You may avoid looking ridiculous by using bluetooth earpiece. If you spend a bit of effort setting up voice recognition, most time you won't even have to reach for your pocket.

I don't see how that would make you avoid looking ridiculous. Now you will either look like a crazy person, or a tool.
