What's immediately noticeable is the faster-than-average processor, and the quad-band GSM/tri-band 7.2Mbps HSPA. The 3.5-inch touch-capable display has a sharp 800x480 (WVGA) resolution, but the page doesn't say if it's capacitive or resistive.

There's no release date—or U.S info—but the pre-order price is 390 Euros (about $571). We'll let you know when Acer fills us in on any U.S plans as its definitely an Android phone to keep an eye on. [eXpansys (translated) via Android Guys]
