Julie Bort writes about a new smartphone from Acer.

“The 4.8-inch Acer smartphone, which apparently has no other name yet (least not one mentioned in the press materials), has the ‘soul of a tablet’ the company says. The large touch screen has a 21:9 aspect ratio, so its long and thin with a large screen. It runs a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and includes all the fancy high end features you would expect from a 3G device trying to bridge the gap between phone and tablet: 6-axis motion sensing (Gyroscope + accelerometer), two cameras 8MP camera for photos and 2MP front camera for video calling.”

Jacqui Cheng writes about three new tablets from Acer.

“Acer has decided to join the masses in rolling out a tablet for any and every demographic the company can possibly think of with a line of new 4.8″, 7″, and 10.1″ tablets. The company introduced the products during the Acer global press conference Tuesday, all of which will eventually run Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) when they are released in 2011. With its new yet-to-be-named tablets, Acer will engage Samsung, RIM, Apple, and a slew of bottom feeders on the latest front of tablet wars.”
