£190 Acer Tempo M900 Smartphone 3.8-inch LCD, Keyboard, 5-megapixel camera

Effective control. Efficient. Practical. Productive. Keep pace with your emails wherever you are. The Acer Tempo M900 with a sliding physical keyboard makes mobile business effortless.

Tear down the walls of your office. The Acer Tempo M900 features a large 3.8” WVGA touch screen, Windows Mobile 6.1, Outlook Mobile and a sliding physical keyboard that – quite literally – puts your office in your hands.

And don’t worry about data security – the embedded fingerprint reader makes sure only you can access your smartphone and the data you move with it.

If you thought Acer had it topped with their notebooks, think again, as their new Tempo line of cell phones look built to give HTC’s Touch series a good old run for its money. As promised, Acer has announced its new Tempo range consisting of four loaded Windows Mobile devices and a bevy of other features that are slowly becoming ubiquitous.

The jewel of the crown of course is the the Acer Tempo M900, which makes no pretense at which upcoming handset it is competing with.

With an expansive 3.8 inch WVGA touchscreen display, the M900 sports HSDPA support, GPS, WiFi, Flashlite support, FM radio, and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, all running on WM 6.1 Profession with a 5-megapixel camera to boot.

No details on its storage capacity are available, although some kind of expansion is suggested, with our bets mostly on microSD. The M900 has also voice command and recording functions helping us go easy on the finger tapping.
