Acer CloudMobile Breaks Cover; Android 4.0 Handset Coming to MWC


When it came to the CES last month, Acer was into tablets in a big way; we saw the company embracing quad-core processors with both its Iconia Tab A510 and A700 models. Now we’re wondering, as we are for so many other companies, just which products Acer might have held-off on showing at CES in order to introduce them at the Mobile World Congress. One such Acer model has just broken cover, with the company revealing plans to show-off its CloudMobile Android handset.

Acer was forced to spill the beans on the CloudMobile in advance of MWC thanks to the phone winning an iF award for achievement in design. We haven’t seen enough of the handset to pass judgment ourselves, but from image above, it certainly has a clean look to it.

Only a few specs on the phone have been revealed so far, including the presence of a 4.3-inch display with a high-def resolution – almost certainly 720p. We also know the CloudMobile will feature Dolby sound, and it will measure-in at under a centimeter thick.

As should be painfully obvious from the phone’s name, Acer is playing-up the phone’s online connectivity. It will be the first model to use the company’s AcerCloud system, providing online storage for the likes of photos, music, and documents.

We look forward to hearing more about the details on AcerCloud, as well as the rest of the CloudMobile’s specs, at MWC. Acer ultimately plans to make the phone available sometime during Q3.
