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's an iBlackDroid; a smartphone that is completely collapsible/expandable; from 1" all the way up to 10". It can be used as both a clamshell-style and candybar-style device, and features a physical keyboard that appears/disappears based on the particular mood its owner is presently in. The battery lasts for 7 days on a full charge, and the phone is available from any carrier in the world, gets perfect reception and speedy data rates in any indoor/outdoor setting, and has a no-contract price of $5.

Such a device would give many of you back *a lot* of your time, because you wouldn't be wasting it whining about your phone, someone else's phone, or all the other phones available.
