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.

It cracks me up, for years it felt like phones were all just about smaller, smaller, smaller. I didn't like it beyond a point because to me, something the size of a credit card was just not comfortable to hold. Now it's reversing and going in the opposite direction, phones getting bigger again. Next they'll be getting smaller because they'll be getting implanted in people's brains. :-)

First thought I had after reading your comment was the cell phone in Zoolander

Second thought I had after typing this was that I actually watched Zoolander.
