Acer shows new beTouch E210 qwerty Android phone

Here’s an upcoming QWERTY phone from Acer which they recently unveiled. The beTouch E210 is an upgrade from their first QWERTY Android phone which was the beTouch E130. Gone is the old-school trackpoint which is replaced by an optical trackpoint making it more look like a BlackBerry with an Android soul.

The Acer beTouch E210 is still powered by a 600 MHz which is probably what you’ll need from a device with a 2.6-inch display. The touchscreen is resistive by the way and a lot of people prefer that when navigating through a small display.

It comes with an Android 2.2 Froyo OS and a 3-megapixel camera. To further maximize the QWERTY keyboard for faster and accurate typing, Acer also bundled a DocumentsToGo app. Other than that, things are pretty basic for an entry-level device.

Acer is targeting availability of the beTouch E210 by the end of May with a price tag of less than Php11,000. If you prefer a BlackBerry physique on your Android, the beTouch E210 can be a cheap alternative.

    The board of Acer was right! The company was being run by idiots.

    If you introduce a low end phone, you should attach a low end price to it. Who’d want to buy this? Should be priced around 7k, tops.

      Don’t worry, after 6 months of low sales, Acer will notice this, which leads to them offering this at 50% off it’s price. :)

    • nah i think 11k is about right for this type of phone. expect 7k from brands like cherry mobile or torque. Samsung Galaxy pro which is also a qwerty android is priced at 14k.

      • wis /

        well we still don’t know how much the galaxy pro is…it’s released at less than 12k php in india…and still the galaxy pro has way better specs than this so so phone…

      • Eason /

        Galaxy Pro is priced at 12k at CMK cellphones.

        Anyways, same specs of Galaxy Pro but at one look it really looks like a Nokia X2-01.

        But, hey for its price tag it can compete for people who can venture into other brands. At least its not OEM, I think…

    definitely going to buy if this one has a higher resolution with a better processor.

    • i don’t think you’d get much out from a better processor on a phone with a small display. the blackberry bold 9700 has 624mhz and users are perfectly fine with it.

      • wis /

        yeah but remember bold 9700 is not touch screen…

        • hehe yeah you’re right… the torch na lang. 624MHz din.

          • wis /

            haha…isn’t the torch a bit sluggish and underpowered? considering it sports double the ram E210 has now…in any case i hope they lower the price…at least same as it’s predecessor E130…

  3. how can you play angry birds with that phone? hehe just saying.
