Acer has finally debuted the F900 smartphone, a smartphone with a huge screen and the ability to run on Windows Mobile 6.1 and the future Windows Mobile 7 when it comes out.
The 3.8-inch screen is what will wow users the most on the F900. With a standard screen resolution of 480x800 pixels, it rivals the likes of the original Asus EEE PC netbook which had a 7-inch screen; the F900 can display 2.5 times more information than the iPhone 3G.
The rest of its feature list is not half as bad; the F900 runs on a Samsung 533MHz CPU, has 128MB memory, 256MB ROM, WiFi, an FM Radio, a microSD memory card slot and full Microsoft Exchange and Office support. Lest not forget the fact that it will play whatever you throw at it content wise - MP4, WMV, H264, 3GP, AAC etc.
Acer has managed to cram all this in a 155g chassis which reminds us of the original iPhone to some extent. At £429 SIM Free, it is £70 cheaper than Nokia's forthcoming N97 and a whopping £120 cheaper than a SIM free iPhone from Play.com.

Now there are rumours (only rumours) that the F900 could house Android by the end of the year. Let's wait and see, shall we. The F900 also comes with a number of pre-installed Google Mobile services like Google Saerch, Maps and Youtube. Acer is also set to release the M900 which comes with a slide out keyboard.
