Acer Announces Allegro As Its First Windows Phone Mango
Acer was accepted as an official Windows Phone OEM together with Fujitsu and ZTE at the time when Windows Phone Mango was announced and now the manufacturer is reportedly making its first device running the Redmond platform public.
The Acer Allegro (you might know it as the W4) will land in Europe before Christmas and will be priced around EUR 299 (around $410) unlocked. From the W4 days we remember that the phone will be powered by a Qualcomm MSM8255 chip at 1GHz and have a 3.6-inch WVGA display, five-megapixel camera with auto-focus and 8GB internal storage.
The specs are those of any wave-one Windows Phone and are on par with the wave-two HTC Radar/4G. There’s no info regarding a front facing camera for Mango but let’s hope Acer threw one in!
