Acer launching its smartphone at the Mobile World Congress

Acer confirmed the launch of its smartphone on Wednesday in an invite to Pocketlint, an U.K based gadget news and reviews site. Since Acer acquired smartphone maker E-Ten (a.k.a) Glofiish last year there had been rumors that the company will be launching its "Microsoft based" smartphone early this year.

Now Acer has confirmed its smartphone launch on February 16th at the big Mobile World Congress cellphone event in Barcelona. President and CEO Gianfranco Lanci and the head of Handheld Business Unit will be present at the event. No mention was made about the model of smartphone to be launched.

It'll be very interesting to see what sort of phone they come out with. Their mobile devices - Laptops are really very good.

It'll be interesting to see how it is could even be just a MID either way if they nail it like they did with aspire one who knows could be good

Windows Mobile but the looks of it. Can't say I'm too enthusiastic about an Acer mobile though still to be fair, we do have an Acer tablet PC at work and the thing rocks (which can't be said about our Acer notebooks) so it could still turn out ok.

Acer sells a pretty wide gamut of stuff. Their higher end business laptops are OK, but the cheap ones are really bad. I do like the desktop PCs, though - they're incredibly generic, making replacement parts easy to find even when the box is old and long out of warranty, and they always have the AGP/PCI-E x16 slot available.

I wonder if it'll be WinMo 6.1 or maybe they'll jump up to 6.5? MS will also show WinMo 6.5 at the same event, so it'd make sense for a few new models to come with it also.
