The new Acer smartphone has a tablet-like form factor. The device will hit the EMEA region in March 2011, according to Acer.

Acer's new Android-based smartphone, which is as yet unnamed, is the company's latest foray in to the smartphone market.

The device combines a tablet-like format with smartphone features and comes with a large 4.8-inch, 1024x480 high-resolution multi-touch screen with a 21:9 aspect ratio.

The size of the screen means that web-pages do not need to be resized, according to Acer, but can be scrolled through much like on a normal PC.

The phone's metal body is slightly curved, designed to fit a user's hand and measures in at 64mm thick.

The phone is designed to have ultra-fast high-speed connectivity via HSDPA @ 14.4 and WiFi N for data connection. It also has Bluetooth 3.0.

Acer's new phone has an 8MP camera with LED flash on the back and a 2MP camera on the front.

The new Acer smartphone runs on a 1GHz Snapdragon processor.

The phone features 720p video recording and can be connected to a users HD TV for HD video viewing.

Acer says the new device will be able to wirelessly control all multimedia content in a user's home through its clear.fi media sharing system.

The phone's Android browser offers multi-touch, Java script optimisation, Adobe Flash Player 10.1 support and multiple page opening.
