Acer Stream Android Smartphone Official

Yesterday we heard a few bits of information about an Android smartphone spotted at the Google I/O event last week. The phone is the Acer Stream where we found out very basic details in that when it launches it will run Android 2.1.

An official announcement has now been made which covers the details of the new smartphone. We learn that the Acer Stream will have a 3.7 inch WVGA AMOLED display that is capable of showing 1.67 million colours. The contrast ratio of the screen is 2000:1 that allows the screen to be viewed in light conditions. Also with the display being AMOLED it helps increase battery life due to a lower amount of power being taken from the screen.

For connectivity the Acer Stream has 3G+ allowing for 7.2MBps HSDPA download speeds. The wireless feature allows it to connect up to 802.11n networks. Bluetooth is also included on the device.

Powering the Acer Stream is a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor that runs at 1GHz. It has 512MB of RAM and Acer has confirmed it will run the Android 2.1 operating system when it launches although we hope Android 2.2 will follow shortly after.

The 5 megapixel camera is capable of capturing video at 720p HD resolutions and other features include a built in radio with RDS. GPS is included allowing geotagged pictures to be captured along with the ability to use satnav on the device.

The smartphone will come with an 8GB memory card. The 8GB card compliments the 2GB of internal flash memory that comes with the device. The microSD card slot can accept up to 32GB capacity cards if needed.

No details of pricing or availability are known at the moment. We’ll provide an update when the information arrives.
