Acer smartphone range calls on the UAE All Acer Tempo smartphones will be available in the UAE by the end of September.

Acer’s entire range of Tempo smartphones will be available in the Middle East by the end of September, with its dual-SIM DX900 model already retailing at stores in the United Arab Emirates for AED 2,599.

The Taiwan-based company announced its intentions to enter the lucrative smartphone market earlier this year by unveiling its range at the Mobile World Congress in February.

The intentions behind the major new move for the computer manufacturer, was to “establish Acer as the world’s leading mobile solutions company,” with the goal of becoming “one of the top five in the smartphone market in the next five years”.

The DX900, which went on sale in select markets in May this year, is based on the Windows Mobile 6.1 platform, comes with a 2.8” touch screen, a 3 megapixel camera and is fully Arabised for the region.

The model is presently sold only at select stores in the country such as Sharaf DG and PlugIns, but will be made more widely available in a few days time along with other models in the Tempo line, including the M900, F900 and X960.

Sanjay Kachroo, head of the smartphone division at Acer Middle East, told that time to market will be their key strength locally as it considers the “MEA market as important to our business as more developed markets – this we have proved with other products and will continue to prove with smartphones.”

The company is also working on launching new models based on the Windows Mobile 6.5 OS, which Kachroo confirmed would be in MEA on the “same day” Microsoft launches the platform.

I second your opiniion. This is the stupid phone which doesnt work at all. SMS doesnt go sometimes, sometimes come as switched off to others though phone is ON (people and customers complaining for this). I had to remove battery 3-4 times everyday to solve this issue. Battery life is short and if I charge more time, the RED LED will be continuosly ON until I remove the battery again... MY GOD..please dont buy any of the ACER all potential buyers..

The phone is useless as long as it using windows ..I bought from UK last March I sent back to the suppler for many defects e.g. Battery life is very short (5 hrs tops without Bluetooth, WiFi, 3G)! Need to remove the battery 5 to 6 times a day due to freeze (windows classic)... I losing Data every now and then ...oh they returned to me as it is after updating the firmware, but not change of course..
