Acer CloudMobile

Could a device that needed eight months (!) to get from unveiling to launch still be attractive? Probably not, but we know at least one company that hopes some of you will answer “yes” to that question. That’s Acer, who first introduced the CloudMobile phone back in February at MWC 2012 only to make it available today, almost 240 days later.

Expansys UK is offering the One X for £379.99 with free shipping, which is one heck of a deal for one heck of a phone. The £380 would translate into around $615 at today’s conversion rates, which might seem a lot for those of you reading us from the States, but that’s almost £200 less than the phone’s UK list price at the time of its release several months ago.

Well, look who’s back from the dead! It’s Acer’s CloudMobile smartphone, unveiled way back in February. Doesn’t ring any bell? It’s no wonder, as the 4.3-incher had a short appearance in a June report hinting at its price, and then disappeared from the spotlight altogether. This time around, we get word that the Acer CloudMobile is already available for pre-order and will hit the UK market starting September 5 at £285 contract-free.

When the LG Prada 3.0 was released in the UK, it was immediately categorized as a high-end phone, not so much because of its specs but more because of its high price and luxurious namesake. Up until yesterday, you needed to spend a respectable £400 to snag the LG Prada 3.0. If you did shell out that kind of money for this third iteration of the venerable Prada series, this post might fill you with a healthy dose of buyer’s remorse. You can no have the LG Prada 3.0 for only £239.99, or £160 less than the original price. You can…

Samsung-Galaxy-Nexus

When Google senior vice president of mobile and digital content Andy Rubin made the announcement that the company will start selling Galaxy Nexus on Google Play, the whole world erupts in cheers. That’s a slight exaggeration, we know, but because the flagship device is priced at an OMG-price of $399 unlocked (!!), who wouldn’t get excited and want to snap up the phone with its 4.65-inch display goodness and the pure unadulterated Google experience? Things didn’t turn out so well for Canadian folks, however, since it turns out the unlocked Galaxy Nexus is only available to US customers. Despite their geographical…

Sales of the Motorola Milestone, the European version of the Verizon Wireless Motorola DROID, began on December 10th and the popular Android handset flew off the virtual shelves of online retailer eXpansys. The UK retailer confirmed that its entire inventory of the Motorola Milestone sold out within 2.5 hours, making the Milestone the fastest selling product ever in the retailer’s eleven year history. eXpansys also received one thousand pre-orders for the Milestone and has increased its order to Motorola twice. Good news if you missed this first round of sales, eXpansys expects to have another shipment in hand and ready…

Back in March we attended a very special event by Acer which introduced their intentions of entering the mobile phone market. Even at this event they were not adverse to Android and since then we’ve seen why. The Acer Lquid A1 has recently gone on sale through online retailers Expansys and Clove, selling at £339.99 ($556) and £328.99 ($538) respectively. The A1 is the first Android smartphone to be powered by the credible 1 GHz Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor, although Acer have opted to under-clock this device, most likely in order to conserve battery power. After all, the battery is only…

The folks over at Electric Pig got the scoop today that the Motorola Milestone, known stateside as the DROID for Verizon, will launch on December 7th in the UK. The Android 2.0 handset will be exclusive to the online retailer Expansys for the remainder of 2009. With a carrier subsidized version not expected until 2010, Britons in the market for the Milestone will have to shell out a rather hefty £449.99 ($742 USD) for arguably one of the top Android handsets on the market. If you just have to have it first, Expansys is currently taking pre-orders for the Milestone…
