Acer offers new smartphone details

Acer provided new details about two of its smartphones, but kept silent on price points for each of them.

The computer maker, which unveiled a lineup of Windows Mobile smartphones at Mobile World Congress in February, said that its dual-SIM DX900 is now available in France, the U.K., Germany, Spain, Portugal, Russia and the Middle East, as well as in Singapore, Hong-Kong, Taiwan, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, Philippines, Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere.

Acer is touting the DX900 as the world's first dual-SIM and dual-standby phone that supports both 3G and 2G connections. The HSDPA phone runs on Windows Mobile 6.1, has a 2.8-inch display and a 3-megapixel camera. The company said that it has a "competitive" price point, but did not give any more pricing details. 

Acer also said that its X960 smartphone will be available in the second quarter in European and Asian markets. The HSDPA phone also runs on Windows Mobile 6.1, and has a keyboard and a 3.2-megapixel camera. The company did not give any pricing details for the X960.

Acer has reportedly said it will not launch a smartphone in the United States until 2010, and is rumored to be working on a smartphone based on Google's Android platform.
