Only recently announced as one of several new phonemakers pairing with Microsoft to make the next generation of Windows Phone 7 devices, Acer has already revealed the W4, its first WinPho7 handset.
Spotted at Computex Taipei, a computer show in Taiwan, the W4 was already running Windows Phone 7 Mango (its latest update) coupled with a five-megapixel camera, and 3.5-inch WVGA touchscreen.
It has DLNA support meaning it will be able to communicate with compatible devices like stereo speakers, high-definition TVs and more. There’s also 8GB of storage available for music and other media.
Its slightly chunky frame has a blueish-purple finish, similar to our review model Xperia Arc- a welcome change to the monochromatic tones of the first-generation of Windows Phone 7 devices. The curved top and bottom edges match previous Acer models, and it’s got us intrigued as to what other new Windows Phones will bring later in 2011.
More news and pictures when we get them.
