We knew that Acer was finally going to get around to producing some smartphones and now that day has arrived with no fewer than four brand new offerings. Filling up the new Tempo line of smartphones are the X960, F900, M900, and DX900.
Are the phones themselves particularly exciting? No, not really. The specs, features, and form factors are pretty much par for the course, doing things that HTC and Asus have been doing for a couple of years now, but it is good to see Acer join its Taiwanese brethren in the smartphone market.
Starting with the Acer Tempo X960, you get Windows Mobile 6.1, GPS, a 2.8-inch VGA touchscreen, HSPA, virtual keyboard, widget-based home screen, and a 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera. The F900 is a little slicker-looking, but it has nearly the exact same set of specs and features.
Moving to the Acer Tempo M900, you get a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, 3.8-inch WVGA touchscreen, biometric fingerprint reader, 5 megapixel autofocus camera, WiFi, Bluetooth, and HSPA. The DX900 has about the same features as well.
