Acer Iconia Smart

In late November, Acer introduced an unnamed 4.8-inch Android smartphone; it's finally got a name and we were able to get hands-on with the Iconia Smart at Mobile World Congress.

The Acer Iconia Smart is defnitely an attention-grabber with its 4.8-inch touch screen and large size. With a 1024x480-pixel resolution, the display looked sharp and gorgeous, but we were sure that the handset's bulkiness would be a turn-off.

However, we were pleasantly surprised when we picked up the smartphone. Though the Iconia Smart is quite long, it's not that wide, so it's easy to hold and use as a phone. The overall construction of the phone feels quite solid as well.

Tasty Gingerbread

The Acer Iconia Smart ships with Android 2.3 and runs Acer's own user interface and suite of applications. Compared with some other manufacturers', Acer's UI isn't too heavily customized, and it includes some neat features like the carousel of your favorite Web sites as shown in Slide 2.
