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.

Choice is key. There are smaller phones for those who like them small.

I have a HD2 and don't find it too big at all, and there's certainly room in my pocket for a slightly larger phone.

There are some things that are just far more usable on a larger screen, e.g. being able to read a website (in landscape) without zooming in.

What would put me off this phone is the 1GHz Snapdragon. That's what I already have, and I'm already running Android on my HD2 so wouldn't gain much by upgrading.

Now where are those roll-up and fold-up screens they promised us?
