Having made it's formal introduction at CES 2016, the Acer Liquid Jade Primo has made an early pre-order appearance in Portugal at Orange. The carrier will be selling the Continuum-capable Windows 10 Mobile phone for €614,99 (about $671) and it does of course include the dock to transform your experience to the big screen.
Acer was the first to announce a high-end smartphone with Windows 10 Mobile but was beaten to market by Microsoft. It ticks most of the boxes you'd look for in a current high-end phone, with a Snapdragon 808 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 5.5-inch 1080p display and a 21MP camera around the back. The value proposition of the Jade Primo over the Lumia 950 could well be the inclusion of the Continuum dock. If the price is right (market dependent, of course) then it could undercut Microsoft's phone plus dock pricing.
The Orange pricing is a little higher than that we were told about at CES, but nevertheless, it's a very interesting phone that we're looking forward to spending some quality time with down the line.
