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.

Please note that this is a 21:9 device, not 16:9 like your EVO or 4:3 like the iPhone.

Just doing some simple math in my head, it has around the same total area as a 4.3" 16:9 device such as your EVO.. The end result is it may be a bit taller, but not any wider.. (And depending on how flush the screen is to the top or bottom, from the looks of it, there is not much space atop and under the screen)

That being said, a 4.8" device for a 16:9 or 4:3 display is just too big for a phone, i don't care who you are.

That is a very valid point you made. I was somewhat considering the dimensions when I read your post. Dailytech should seriously post something like this in future articles. Or, at least, "the phone is around the same width as the Evo, and about 3/4 of an in taller." (just guessing)
