Seems Microsoft has been working together with Acer for quite some time. How do we know? The first Windows Phone from Acer is already past the development phase.

We know you’re dying to know the specs of what Acer calls the Acer W4. It’s got a 3.6-inch 800×400 WVGA screen, 5MP camera with auto-focus, DLNA, 8GB of storage,and a 1GHz processor.

If you are currently wondering to yourself just how it differentiates from  current Windows Phone devices, you shouldn’t kid yourself. It doesn’t, but that’s actually a good thing. We get the feeling this device is headed to the lower priced end of the device spectrum.

  1. DLNA is about the only great feature here – otherwise it sits squarely in the middle of the GEN1 pack, I would have thought. Surely ACER would have had the opportunity to up their specs to whatever MS are planning as a GEN2 device ????

    • It’s Acer. They don’t do that, do they? They’re traditionally more the affordable, middle-of-the-road manufacturer.

      I will be very curious to see if the price really is lower than what we saw with the other WP7 devices. I was kind of under the impression when WP7 first came out that they were all going to have the same price point; I’d kind of like to see Acer be the one that changes that.

    • Middle of the road? Nah buddy i’m gonna go ahead and say Acer is one step above buying a Sylvania “nettop” at your local CVS.
