Review of the Acer neoTouch P300
Posted by Eriq Cook in "Acer Windows Phones" @ 12:30 AM
The Acer neoTouch P300 is a new HSDPA/HSUPA smartphone with slide-out QWERTY keyboard running Windows Mobile 6.5.3. Given the current selection of similar devices already on the market and the release of Windows Phone 7 Series devices around the corner, you have to wonder why Acer would come to the game this late with such a "typical" device with no real features that set it apart from the competition.
With all of that said, PDA-247 has provided a quick review of the P300 (pre-release unit) outlining general hardware and software features. While I'm trying to give the P300 a fair shot, several glaring things I noticed were the odd placement of the Email/SMS and @/.com keys in the bottom center (with the space bar to the left), no dedicated period key, and the slim form factor may be a bit too slim for comfortable use.
The Acer neoTouch P300 is available from select (non U.S.) retailers for approximately £300 ($500 U.S.) this month. For detailed specs visit Acer's official P300 website and/or hit the Read link for the review.
