Acer’s new beTouch E130 has passed the FCC. Check this thing out – it looks like they just slapped together some hardware they had left over in the 2005 parts bin, and the specs aren’t much better:

  • QWERTY keypad
  • 2.6” 320 x 240 screen
  • 416 Mhz CPU
  • 256 MB RAM
  • 512 MB Memory
  • 3.2 MP Camera
  • WiFi (likely topping out at 802.11g)
  • Android 1.6


I have no idea what Acer is shooting for with this phone. We’ve seen budget Android phones before - such as Sprint’s Intercept and Verizon’s WX445 – and this thing looks be crap even compared to those. No word yet on where it’s headed – it may not be coming to America (or Europe, for that matter).
