The Acer Cloudmobile was first showcased at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, in February this year. Six months later, that's now, the device has finally become available to pre-order in the UK.
What is CloudMobile?
Yes the name is a misnomer sort of.
Online retailer, Expansys, is offering the Cloudmobile SIM-free and unlocked for £284.99. In your purchase, you get a really good looking smartphone, with Android 4.0 on board -- complete with on-screen buttons -- 720p 4.3-inch display, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM and 8GB on board storage. A rear 8MP camera with LED flash. Notably, Acer won a prestigious design award for this device.
The phone looks a good bargain, and can make a place for itself in the mid-range.
Expansys expects to begin shipping the Cloudmobile to pre-order customers from September 5.
