Au contraire, Robert. Acer looks to be doing a bit more than just rebranding a Glofiish phone for this month’s cell phone bazaar in Barcelona. What is really interesting is BGR says this thing is a swivel keyboard and the shape matches the overall phone’s shape. I have trouble seeing how this thing swivels; to me it looks like a snap-on accessory.
To me, that would be even more attractive than always lugging around an attached keyboard that I don’t need for many tasks. I’d be much happier to snap-in the phone for some serious emailing when I have to. Sure, I would lose the keyboard, but I am sure Acer can make more, right? BGR labeled the photo AcerSlider so perhaps they know more then they are letting on?
The OS is unclear on this. I’ve said that I expect Acer to bring out a bunch of Windows Mobile phones, but maybe they are dabbling with Android here?
Whatever it is, I propose we start a collection up to buy these ninjas a quality camera. Maybe one of those 10 megapixel jobbers with autofocus and a flash? These low-res, blurry, grainy photos are getting to me. We’ll see this thing in full glory (and resolution) in just a couple of weeks.
