Acer CloudMobile Coming To Mobile World Congress

At CES last month, Acer unveiled its online storage solution, AcerCloud which will give owners of Acer PCs access to all their documents, photos, films and music while on the go. At Mobile World Congress (MWC) later this month, the company will unveil the first smartphone which will include AcerCloud technology.

The Acer CloudMobile will be less than 10mm thick, come with a 4.3in HD display and will be powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor. The phone will also come with Android 4.1 installed but while it will be on show at MWC in Barcelona, it won’t be available to buy until Q3 of 2012.

Acer is boasting about the phone’s design, announcing a design award from the International Forum Design of Germany. Some of the design tweaks made by Acer is the includion of perforated stainless steel, a "DNA Sleeve" design which promises "soft, wrapping contours" to help enhance the handheld experience and "tactile details" on the volume buttons and the rear of the phone.

Let us know in the comments what you think of the new phone and if the AcerCloud service would be enough to get you to buy the Acer CloudMobile.

Announcing a phone in February that will be available to buy in October is a basic marketing error that will ensure it feels out of date when released.

You should never announce a phone more than a month before general availability.

October is Q4. Though even a Q3 release in July is a long wait.

I always take the pessimistic/realistic view that actual availability is at the end of the advertised period, not the beginning, so when a company says Q3, that means late September..
