Microsoft is hard at work on getting the Mango update to Windows Phone 7 ready for the prime time later this year. The company has been talking up a lot of the new partners that will be offering smartphones running Mango. Last week Microsoft announced that Acer, Fujitsu, and ZTE would all be producing Mango smartphones. We already know Nokia is onboard too. The specs of the Acer W4 Windows Phone have been unveiled.
The new smartphone will sport a 3.5-inch WVGA capacitive screen with a resolution of 480 x 800. The rear camera is a 5MP unit with autofocus. The smartphone will operate on the HSPA 850/1900 or 900/2100 frequencies. It will also support GSM quad band 850/900/1800/1900Mhz. The processor under the hood is the Qualcomm MSN8255 at 1GHz.
Other features include WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, DLNA support, and 8GB of storage. The phone looks nice enough, what do you think? Is Mango appealing to you at all? You can get better hardware in Android offerings on the market already that what I am seeing here.
