Acer CloudMobile struts its stuff on video


News travels fast, apparently. Hot off the heels of Acer announcing the entry-level Liquid Glow comes a leaked hands-on video with Acer’s flagship device, the Acer CloudMobile, making it’s glam appearance at Milan’s Fashion Week. The folks at Cellulare Magazine produced the hands-on video of the CloudMobile, showing off the device’s crisp, bright screen and super responsive UI.

The CloudMobile is rumored to be one beast of a device, laying claim to the following impressive, yet incomplete spec sheet:

  • 1.5 GHz dual-core processor
  • Android 4.1
  • 4.3″ HD display with 1280 x 720 resolution
  • 8 megapixel rear-facing camera
  • NFC
  • Dolby Mobile Audio

The Acer CloudMobile is still a prototype device at this point, and won’t launch to the general public until Q3 2012. We’ll be on-hand next week in Barcelona, and will hopefully be able to hunt down and get our hands on a prototype.

While you likely weren’t exactly blown away by the Acer Liquid Glow, how are you feeling about the CloudMobile? Sound off in the comments.

    Releasing entry level and high end devices is good, playing both sides of the field is also smart. The specs look acceptable so far though. Design looks pretty good too.

  • h0ruza

    They’ve put buttons on it?!?

    • David

      Seriously WTF? Two sets of buttons.

      • epps720

        That’s a shame b/c it’s a good looking phone otherwise

    • Joel

      O_o? Im sorry…..are buttons THAT disgusting to you guys now? where was I when they became so taboo?

      • jonathan3579

        It’s the fact that there’s TWO sets of buttons: software and hardware. If they chose one or the other then I don’t think it’d be a big deal. (Although I think from this point forward, most will prefer soft keys.)

        • Joel

          Oooh okay..I understand a bit better now. In either case…if a phone has outstanding specs but 2 sets of buttons – couldnt care less imo- but at the same time removing them is a step forward, and I support that moreso.

        • John Drinkwater

          ‘The Acer CloudMobile is still a prototype device at this point’

          ie, the software is not fully baked. It’s fairly simple for them to have the s/w buttons not appear, but they still have to tell the OS they have h/w buttons.

    • Zach

      I believe the article said this is a prototype. I assume buttons will be removed come Q3.

    • kazahani

      I’m assuming that the final build of the device will forego the capacitive soft keys. It’s silly to have two home keys and two back keys right next to each other.

  • RRR

    Another day – another dozen of Android phones. Which actually a fun. The site with the name “Apple and Me” would be boring.

  • h0ruza

    Which also means there’s less screen than I thought there was going to be. :(

    I’ve now lost interest. Shame

  • delinear

    I can’t say any of these devices are setting my world alight so far, which is a real shame as Acer is a company that’s done a lot for us in laptops, nervous and tablets so I’d like them to succeed with their phones.

  • Hall Lo

    it looks okay… dunno if acers gonna ditch the hardware or software buttons?

  • spazby

    bring on more options… i have too much money and don’t know what to do with it….

  • aranea

    It’s nothing special in my opinion.

  • Schmidty850

    This one is more interesting than the Liquid Glow, but still not a phone I would jump to.

  • redraider133

    That doesn’t look half bad. Now if they can be as good with updates as they are with their tablet line they could gain a lot of followers that way.

  • redraider133

    Why does it have the capacitive buttons and the one screen buttons? Waste of screen space having both IMO.
