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.

At least for me, I stop looking at a "daily phone" when it's over 4", which is already quite a bulky size, but a good compromise between screen size and portability.

I love big screens but boy, you'd need to be using a purse to carry something as big.

So, beware our beloved female partners, soon enough our techno-addiction will lead us to steal their purses just to carry a phone.

It's funny how we complained about those times we had to bear with those more-than-a-half-pound beasts from Motorola (along with a pack of spare batteries as they would run out in a matter of hours), and 20 years later we are heading towards that same situation :)
