LAS VEGAS--We've seen a lot of touch-screen smartphones at CES 2011 so far, but very few with QWERTY keyboards. However, Acer's got one that combines both.

The Android 2.2-based Acer BeTouch E210 has a compact, slate design that features a 2.6-inch, 320x240 touch screen and a full QWERTY keyboard, as well as an optical trackpad. Hoping to provide more instant access, the keyboard has been redesigned since the BeTouch E130 and now includes shortcuts to contacts, camera, and messaging apps.

The BeTouch E210 has full wireless options and a 3.2-megapixel camera, but it's not a high-performance machine with just a 416MHz processor 512MB ROM/256MB RAM, and 1,300mAh battery.

The Acer BeTouch E210 will be available in the U.K. in March, but like the Acer Liquid Mini, it won't be immediately available here in the States.
