Acer has also introduced an Android-based smartphone with a 4.8-inch display, which the maker dubs as "100% smartphone, 100% tablet." While this one is going to fall more in the smartphone category, that LED-backlit screen is nothing to joke about. There are a lot of smartphones (i.e. HTC Droid Incredible, iPhone 4, etc.) advertised as being good for streaming movies when on-the-go. But with a 21:9 aspect ratio and 1,024 x 480 resolution, this one is surely to be the best option if that's what you're interested in.

Powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, this unnamed Acer sports a number of other impressive features, including:

  • Multi-touch display
  • HSDPA
  • Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth 3.0
  • DLNA support
  • Dolby Mobile sound technology
  • Adobe Flash Player 10.1 support
  • 6-axis motion-sensing Gyroscope and accelerometer
  • 8-megapixel rear camera and LED flash
  • 2-megapixel front camera for high-quality IP video calling
  • Google Apps suite (i.e Contacts, Google Maps, Email, Gchat, etc.)
  • HDMI

However, the version of Android OS hasn't been specified (presumably Froyo?) nor has the price. But it will be available in April 2011, so stay tuned.
