Acer Gets Official with ‘Stream’
Today finds Acer officially announcing their latest Android handset, the Stream. With a 3.7-inch AMOLED screen, Snapdragon processor, and Android 2.1, the Stream is designed for “demanding users who look for the best in entertainment”.
Acer has created a new 3D user interface that features animations and a ‘peeling’ gesture to unlock the phone. The lock screen lets users read information without having to open applications and a History panel provides quick access to often-used apps.
As far as hardware goes, the Stream also features a 5 megapixel camera, 512MB RAM, 2GB memory, 3G+, HSDPA 7.2, Bluetooth, and WiFi b/g/n. The FM radio, UPnP technology, and Dolby Mobile sound system compliment the phone quite well in the ‘entertainment’ area as does the HDMI port for watching movies on larger screens.
Look for pricing and carrier availability over the next few weeks.
