While new Android tablets such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab may have a higher resolution screen than most phones, the larger size of a tablet means they’re unlikely to replace our mobile phones any time soon. Things are looking up though as we may be about to see a compromise which could let us have the best of both worlds. Acer plan to release a device which takes the best elements of both a mobile phone and a tablet.
The new Acer device, yet to be named, features a large 4.8″ screen with an impressive resolution of 1024 x 480. That’s slightly smaller than the Dell Streak and it should be just about small enough to be a suitable everyday mobile phone.
This new device isn’t just relying on its large screen to impress though with a 2 megapixel front-facing camera, an 8 megapixel rear camera, 720p video recording, a 1Ghz processor, HDMI output and a full metal body this new handset could be a real winner.
With some of the most popular handsets released recently, such as the HTC Desire HD, featuring screens over 4 inches in size we could see these huge screens become a standard feature of many more high-end handsets. We won’t blame you if you’re unable to resist the temptation of such a beautiful, high resolution screen, but just promise us you’ll be responsible if you upgrade and send your old handset to a mobile phone recycling company!
