4.8 inch Smarpthone Blurs The Line Between Handset and Tablet: Acer Iconia Smart, Priced at 499 EUR

And we thought that the HTC Eternity was huge, with its 4.7 inch display… wait till you see the Acer Iconia Smart, a 4.8 inch smartphone coming to Germany in September with a 499 euro price tag. This model was first spotted back at Mobile World Congress in February, but no launch date was given then.

This time, we have the official Acer Germany Facebook account providing info on the debut of the handset. We must also mention that the screen on this handset is an ultra wide one, with 19:9 aspect and 1024 x 480 pixel resolution. Android 2.3 Gingerbread is the OS of choice, while a Snapdragon CPU takes care of all the processes on the device.

There’s also an 8 megapixel camera on board, in case you want photo capture. Expect this model to also debt in the UK via Expansys soon enough, with the retailer already offering the smartphone for pre-order, but without a price and launch date.
