New but old Acer smartphone revealed

Acer DX900

We know that Acer is planning to unveil at least one smartphone on February 16th. One of these has been revealed a bit early. Unfortunately, the Acer DX900 appears to be no more than a rebadged E-TEN Glofiish DX900, a dual-SIM smartphone first unveiled last June. Acer purchased E-TEN last March.

The Acer DX900 is powered by a 533MHz Samsung S3C processor and Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional with the Spb Mobile Shell user interface. It comes with quad-band (850/900/1800/1900MHz) GSM and tri-band (2100/1900/850MHz) HSDPA/UMTS connectivity on the first SIM and tri-band (900/1800/1900MHz) on the second, a 2.8-inch VGA touchscreen display, 128MB RAM and 256MB ROM, built-in GPS, 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, a 3MP auto-focus camera, a 0.3MP front-facing camera, composite TV out support, a microSD card slot, and a 1530mAh battery.

Clove Technology in the UK is already offering it as a pre-order for £395 (about US$570). Official pricing has not been revealed yet but Clove expects that it will be available by late February.
