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.
