AcerA1There was a rumor back in March about the Acer A1 and how it was due to be released this September…

    Naah… who'd pay for this phone with stock Android, when you can get a Motorola with a keyboard and MotoBlur?

    Too little, too late I say…

      oh hold on… I didn't realize this had a 3.5" WVGA screen…. not bad. But it will have to be considerably cheaper than the Xperia 3…

        It's also the first real upgrade we've seen to the G1, with a faster processor on board. Not what I'm looking for – I'd miss the hardware keyboard – but it's good to see that upgraded hardware is finally on its way.

    Looks cool, though the dimensions are a bit on the big side. Too bad Google is attacking the Android community.

    Finally an android phone with AT&T 3G frequencies! Would be much happier if this had a hardware keyboard. Still waiting to see how the CyanogenMod situation plays out before I decide to purchase another android device. I'm leaning towards the N900 at the moment, though it doesn't support 3G on AT&T.

    It sucks that it doesn't include neither a keypad nor a flashlight…but hey, it got Snapdragon chip and it's going to be cheaper than Sony's X3 snapdragon.
    Please come to the USA…

    with a larger 3.5" touchscreen, a soft keyboard should be much easier to use even in vertical mode.
