Acer neoTouch vs. Touch HD: Video Benchmarks
The Touch HD and the Acer neoTouch are similar devices. They both have 3.8″ WVGA screens and they both have the same form factor. Where they differ is what’s on the inside, with the neoTouch packing the tasty 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD8250 CPU, and the Touch HD sporting the processor found commonly on most of HTC’s current-generation devices, the Qualcomm MSM7201A clocking in at 528MHz.
