Acer announces P300 and P400

Acer has announced two new Windows Phones that will be running Windows Mobile 6.5.3.

The Acer Neotouch P300 is a sliding-keyboard designed Windows Phone that will sport a 3.2" WQVGA touch screen.  The Acer NeoTouch P400 is a "black slab" Windows Phone that is powered by the Qualcomm 7227 600mhz processor.

The P300 is listed as being available in March of 2010 while the P400 is expected to hit the market in May of 2010. Both will likely hit the European market first, with the potential of eventually finding the U.S. market.

Dieter and Phil hope to get some hands-on time with these two Windows Phones but in the meantime, for more on the available specs and pictures of these Acer phones, ease on past the break.

  • What great devices!! 1 with a WQVGA screen and 528mhz cpu and another with a screwy resolution bound to please developers. This is exactly the kind of fragmentation and poor performing devices WP7S will eliminate, plus I wonder who in their right mind will buy a WQVGA device with a processor from 2 years ago in 2010? Good luck running games on that.
  • agreed
  • Yeah, HTC is the same, still pushing old tech yet as new.. They should have to take a hit an eat their inventories instead of pushing crap on the consumer still. Or prior to a OS that will not accept is as viable. I kinda hope they choke on the returns they get back when people see other modern stuff and go, i have been taken. Bob
