Acer W4 Hands-on at IFA 2011 [Video]

The gentlemen over at WMPU have published this pretty neat video of the Acer W4 at IFA 2011. Bare with us when watching the footage and try to refrain from shouting at your screen, especially when the two demo devices are thrown about at the start of the video, ouch.

Although the Acer W4 only comes in 8GB flavouring, there is an LED notification light that a large majority of users desire. Also, much like the HTC Radar, it features DLNA and is going to be available in two colours - black and white. Lastly, the Acer W4 is to sport Acer FastCharge, which will enable the device to charge at a faster rate when connected to a Acer desktop or laptop.

Reminder of the specification sheet we posted:

  • 3.6-inch WVGA Capacitive screen,
  • Screen Resolution: 480×800
  • 5mp Camera with auto-focus.
  • HSPA 850/1900 or 900/2100 /GSM quad band 850/900/ 1800/ 1900 MHz Support.
  • Qualcomm MSM 8255 running at 1GHz (same processor as in the Xperia Play)
  • Wifi, Bluetooth 2.1
  • DLNA Support
  • Windows Phone Mango
  • 8GB Storage

While in previous photos we've all been slightly cautious about the Acer handset it does look much smarter in a real life video and is worth of running Mango. What do you make of it now we've seen more angles?

Acer W4 Hands-on at IFA 2011 [Video]


Has the person filming ever used a WP7 device? He seemed a little alien to if you ask me.Nice phone though, however i am personally waiting for the HTC Titan :D Roll on upgrade time!

I was just going to ask who the guy is, because it is quite annoying watching these kind of movies when it is apparent you're dealing with someone who does not have a clue.Pick UP the damn phone to stop it from wiggling!No, the Bing screen is not the lock screen, you cannot drag it upwards!Oh wait.. this is all probably too late :P

Sorry but, as a 2nd gen device (as new mango devices are comning out) I expect more features (front camera, better display, etc)Nice phone but, Nothing special in my eyes. My Trophy will hold me off a little longer.
