As of late, we have not heard too much about Acer's Jade Primo phone running Windows 10 Mobile. The phone has soft-launched in a handful of European markets but nothing Stateside until today. We're tipped by 'HeyCori' that the Continuum-powering phone is now available at the Microsoft Store, and sure enough, it is for a pricey $649.
Besides being able to order it online some Microsoft Stores are selling them locally now as well (speaking of, you can finally now check inventory at your local store from the website).
Before you panic the $649 you are tossing down is getting more than just a phone. If you recall, Acer is shipping this as a kit, and indeed you get more than just the Jade Primo in the box:
- Acer Liquid Jade Primo
- AC power adapter
- AC power cord
The only thing missing from this Continuum-ready kit is the display. Still, for many who would just want the phone you are going to have to shell out a bit more money than you would for even a Lumia 950 XL.
Regarding specifications, the Jade Primo holds its own:
