Acer Android Stream handset arrives exclusive to eXpansys

Acer's first high-end Android mobile phone arrives solely with the Internet phone shop giant eXpansys, as of August the 9th SIM free and unlocked for £399.

Motorola's Milestone Google OS driven phone also arrived in the UK the very same way for an exclusive period of time, which is a change from a handset network having sole custody of a mobile phone for a similar duration.

The Acer Stream is the company's first venture into the high-end Android phone space, with HTC firmly dominating this area of late with the HTC Desire.

Acer's Stream arrives running Android 2.1 with their own customised UI, running from a 3.7-inch AMOLED WVGA touch screen driven by a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor where the 5 megapixel camera is capable of 720p HD video recording - that can be displayed through its mini-HDMI socket.

The latter of which is a spec that appears to be an upcoming trend with handsets, with the Motorola XT720 arriving last week in the UK with that same standard where there's said to be more of a similar ilk on the way from others.
