Acer set to release Allegro Windows Phone this Christmas in Europe
Although we're note exactly hearing anyone clamoring for an Acer Windows Phone, at least not with the reported specs that the Allegro has on board, it's still nice to see a low to mid range offering for those in the market.
TelecomPaper is reporting that the Acer Allegro is set to go on sale in Europe this holiday season (think Christmas) for EUR 299, which ain't exactly cheap for Europe, it isn't too bad either.
We're guessing that the Allegro is simply the W4, a device we've seen making a few appearances here and there. To refresh, the W4/Allegro has the following specs:
- 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
So it's basically a Mango phone with Gen 1 features. Not bad, not great. Thanks, TheWeeBear, for the heads up!
