Acer F1 gets 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, 5MP, WM6.5

Acer have brought their F1 Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphone to Computex, and there’s finally a spec sheet to go with the prototype.  We now know that the F1 is based on Qualcomm’s 1GHz Snapdragon processor – the same as Toshiba’s TG01 – paired with a spacious 3.8-inch WVGA touchscreen and 5-megapixel autofocus camera.

There’s also an always-welcome 3.5mm headphone jack on the top of the phone, and the camera has a flash to accompany it.  The front controls are touch-sensitive, plus there’s a front-facing camera for video calls, GPS, WiFi and support for up to 7.2Mbps HSDPA.

Acer are talking about potentially putting their own shell on top of Windows Mobile 6.5, but nothing has been decided.  Apparently the F1 will be reaching shelves by Christmas, but there’s no word on what this flagship Acer smartphone might cost.
