Acer outs two new Android phones

Acer has announced the imminent release of two new Android-powered phones in the shape of the Acer beTouch E120 and beTouch E130.

Both run the now-surpassed Android 1.6 Donut, wrapped in an Acer-designed shell. The Acer beTouch E120 has a 2.8-inch QVGA touchscreen while the Acer beTouch E130 has a 2.6-inch QVGA touchscreen and full Qwerty keyboard. Both sport a 3.2-megapixel camera, dual-band 3G, WiFi and Bluetooth.

The 1500mAh battery should mean the phones run for at least a day.

The renewed Acer beTouch line integrates all of the core Google applications including Google Maps coupled with Latitude and Android Email, as well as having access to the 20,000 apps available on the Android Market.

The ubiquitous social networking functions are present but the beTouch E130 is more businesslike, offering compatibility with all popular email services as well as Microsoft Exchange servers (through Roadsync), as well as the possibility to synchronise your contacts to the web (through Google Contact Sync).

The E120 will be available in mid July, and the E130 follows in August.
