Back in March we attended an Acer press launch for their slew of upcoming mobile devices this year as they attempt to break into the mobile smartphone market. Back then we asked the question that…
I will soon be posting my review of the Acer S110 Stream but in the mean time I thought I would comment on my initial reactions to the device and post a few images. The Stream is Acer’s attempt to create a top-of-the-range smartphone capable of cutting with the likes of the Galaxy S and iPhone. For the most part, the phone lives up to the task when we consider its specifications on paper: HSDPA/HSUPA/EDGE/GPRS, Qualcomm QSD 8250 1Ghz processor, 512MB ROM & RAM, 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED display, 5.0-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi b/g/n and expandable microSD card-slot.
Indeed, the Stream is a great phone and feels like one in the hand. For me, though, there is something missing so far that I haven’t quite put a finger on (figuratively and literally) that would make this phone a giant contender. This is surprising since it features some useful additions such as dedicated hardware keys on the bottom of the device and a truly customised version of Android which we’ll get into later in the full review. For now though, check out a couple of pictures after the jump and let me know if you have any specific questions you would like answered about this device.
