Default 1GHz Snapdragon-Based Acer F1 Demoed at Computex

http://www.eprice.com.tw/mobile/tal...102&tid=4140420

Ever since Acer scooped up E-TEN, the company's been churning out some pretty compelling Windows Mobile devices, though none more compelling than the Windows Mobile 6.5-based F1 (translated version), which Acer says will be out in the second half of the year. Like the Toshiba TG01, the F1 packs a Snapdragon chipset clocked at 1GHz. It also features a 3.8", 480 x 800 touch screen, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, HSDPA, a 5.0-megapixel camera with flash, GPS, an FM tuner, and a 3.5mm headphone jack (you hear that, HTC?). Who wants one?

I do; either way this or the Toshiba. HTC is underpowered...

Finally! This is exactly the combination I've been waiting for.

- Decent Camera w/ flash
- 3.5MM headphone jack! I know people bluetooth is fine, but I personally am not a fan.
- Large, high resolution touch screen (though I doubt this is capacitive since wm 6.5 doesn't officially support it)

Looks great. Hopefully they offer this unlocked with US 3G bands.

I hope it has US 3G and hits retail before WM7 devices will.

My educated guess is that we will not see a WM7 device available for sale before 2011.
I would love to be wrong though...

One of the pictures shows USB icon in the program list. What does it signify? USB host?
Thank you.
