Acer Stream | New Android Phone On The Block | 40Tech

The newest super-powered Android 2.1 phone on the block is the Acer Stream, a 1GHz Snapdragon fuelled, 3.7 inch multi-touch WVGA AMOLED screen sporting, HDMI port having smartphone that easily compares with the Nexus One and Droid Incredible. Hold on to your hats, kiddies, it’s been cleared by the FCC and is heading to the US all soon-like (no word on Canada though).

The Acer Stream has already received unboxing treatment from the folks at Batista70Phone, and though the video is in a language other than English (Italian, I think…), it is fairly self-explanatory and highlights the major features of the new device, including:

  • Micro USB
  • TV Out
  • Micro HDMI
  • 512MB of RAM
  • 2GB onboard storage
  • Micro SD port (still mad at the iPhone for not including one)
  • 480 X 800 Resolution
  • 5 Megapixel Camera that can support 720p HD video

 

Check out the video here.

 

The Acer Stream is meant for HSDPA networks and includes Bluetooth and WiFi (wireless b/g/n) connectivity as well. No word on price yet, but it is sure to be competitive with its advanced Android cousins and the iPhone 3Gs.
