Nokia has recently unveiled (1), (2) its first Windows Phone products including Nokia Lumia 800 and Lumia 710, While Samsung Focus S and Focus Flash handset have been confirmed to launch by AT&T on November 6th. More manufacturers should be now coming forward to announced their Windows Phones. Well, we’ve been hearing about the Acer-made Windows Phone, W4 Allegro for a while now. Acer W4 Allegro would be the first Windows Phone from the manufacturer and we first saw the W4 at Computex 2011 event in May. Acer has now finally launched the W4 Allegro Windows Phone.
Acer Allegro runs Windows Phone 7.5 Mango OS, offering a 1GHz single-core chipset, sporting a 3.6-inch LCD touchscreen display with 800×480 pixels of resolution, a 5 MP autofocus camera with LED flash, 8 GB of built-in storage, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS, a 1,300mAh battery to provide 6 hours talk time, accelerometer, proximity sensor and light sensor. All the mentioned specs will refer this handset as a low-range spec’d Windows Phone, but it can still make good use of some big features of the pretty decent Windows Phone Mango OS.
Price & Availability
The Acer W4 Allegro will be hitting France regions in mid-November for an affordable price tag of €299 (~ $423), which is slightly less than the price of the Nokia Lumia 710 Windows Phone. The phone would be available the both black and white colored versions.
