Acer have officially unveiled the Acer Stream, the company?s latest Android smartphone. Running Android 2.1 Eclair on a 1Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, the Stream has a 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED touchscreen, HSDPA, Bluetooth and WiFi b/g/n. There?s also 512MB of RAM, 2GB of onboard storage (plus a microSD card slot) and a customized Acer UI.
A 5-megapixel camera can be used for 720p HD video recording, and there?s an HDMI port for hooking up your HDTV. Elsewhere Acer has stuffed in GPS, UPnP and DLNA compliance. The whole thing measures 11.2mm thick.
No word on how much the Acer Stream will cost, nor when exactly it might launch, but it was spotted earlier this week clearing the FCC. That certainly suggests a US launch.
Acer has just announced its first e-reader device. The LumiRead offering WiFi and 3G connectivity options. It is coming with a similar integrated keyboard and a smaller 6-inch Ink display. It’s also throwing in an ISBN scanner, which will be turning paperbacks into instruments of their own destruction by allowing you to scan a book in for later purchase online. Supported formats are described only as “various,” and there’s 2GB of storage onboard (expandable via MicroSD) to keep things stashed. Expect this new e-reader to show up in Q3 of 2010.
