So say early reports.
Fresh from its purchase by Acer E-TEN is set to bring dual sim technology into the mainstream with its latest smartphone.
According to leaks, the Taiwanese company is prepping the ‘DX900’ (above) which will become the latest member of the Glofiish series and attempt to cash in on the growing sector of consumers carrying two sets of mobiles.
The DX900 is no technological dud either packing HSDPA, a 3MP camera with autofocus, 2.8in display with VGA resolution, GPS, a motion sensor, FM tuner, microSD expansion slot and – in typical E-TEN style – a Windows Mobile OS (yup, it’s version 6.1).
Omissions? Well there’s just the standard 128MB RAM/256 ROM onboard which is getting a little old hat for a modern smartphone while I think the screen could be larger with all that free facia space. That said, for those forced to use both business and leisure handsets the DX900 could be the most sensible alternative to date.
Asia will be the DX900’s first port of call, but don’t be surprised to see this go global later in the year. Now if the combined efforts of E-TEN and new sugar daddy Acer can just land it a telco deal…
