Today, we unboxed the HTC HD2, which sports a powerful 1GHz Snapdragon processor. Well, it looks like its less expensive cousin, the Acer neoTouch S200 (we're giving one away!), has recently been upgraded with some custom ROMs. The S200 comes with Windows Mobile 6.5 in its stock form, but now users can slip into something a bit more finger friendly WM 6.5.1 (build 23506). The custom ROM is available thanks to hdubli on XDA-developers. Below, you can see 6.5.1 in action on the neoTouch S200. Hdubli, with the help of rafyvitto, is also working on a 6.5.1 ROM with Manila 2.5. They're ...

A video from Solopalmari has been published which shows the browser speed between the HTC HD2 with server-side compression technology on the Opera Mobile 9.7 browser, the Acer neoTouch S200 with Internet Explorer Mobile, and the iPhone 3GS with Safari. With server side compression technology, the HTC HD2 beat out its competitors, with IE Mobile on the Acer coming in last. How good is the Snapdragon processor you may ask? Well, as far as screen rotation speeds, it seems that the Snapdragon handsets are pretty zippy. (via: WMPowerUser)

The leaked picture on Engadget Mobile shows us a device that we've seen before--perhaps it's the neoTouch S200 F1 stripped of its Windows Mobile brain for Android? It seems that unlike HTC, which is creating a fun, consumer-oriented design for its Android handsets (like the chin on most Android devices), Acer may be saving development costs in reusing the same chassis from its Windows Mobile ...

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. In the review of the Acer neoTouch, we showed you through videos and benchmarks just how fast the Snapdragon is. We concluded that in day to day operation, the Snapdragon makes the neoTouch fast, but how ...

We just received the Snapdragon-packing Acer neoTouch. It's running Windows Mobile 6.5, has support for US 3G (via the UMTS 1900 band), and is thinner than the Touch HD. Right now you can follow us on Twitter and ask questions as we do a live review while the unboxing video uploads to YouTube.
