"Acer has launched the Acer Allegro in France, making it Acer's first foray into the the worlld of the Windows Phone 7 operating system...The most interesting aspect, however, is the introduction of Fast Charge technology, which apparently charges the device's 1300mAh battery 2.5 times faster than the its other tablets and phones."
It's not a top of the line handset - the Allegro meets the minimum specs for Microsoft's mandated hardware for WP7, but that's about it. The biggest differentiator is the fast-charge technology, which is nice given the medium sized battery. Hopefully we'll be seeing more manufacturers picking this up, as well as more offerings from Acer. The Allegro will retail for 299 Euros sans cointract, which tells you what market this model is aimed at.
