Acer kills off ETEN brand, brings new phones to Singapore

As cell phones get smaller and thinner, Acer apparently has gone against the grain and is launching 3-foot-phones in Singa- ... Wait. This just in. No giant phones. Phew.

But what we do have is a launch event for a slew of new phones in Singapore. It's worth a mention here because we've seen a number of these before, most recently on the floor of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona earlier this year. The initial five either available now or in the near future are the DX900, DX650, X960, F900 and M900.

Also noted by TechieLobang [via BGR] is that Acer is putting the ETEN brand out to pasture.

During the speech, Mr. Roger Yuen mentioned about Acer and its current plan. Plus information of ETEN. Apparently, there will be NO MORE products from ETEN. New handsets will be in the name of ACER. Currently, the Acer Smart Handhelds are designed in Europe, Paris, according to Mr. Yuen.

So there you go. More phones we won't be seeing here anytime soon. And that's a shame.
