Devices break 1GHz barrier

Two upcoming smartphones from Acer and HTC have been identified as using Qualcomm's 1GHz Snapdragon processor, according to industry sources. The first, the Acer F1, is expected to launch on October 6th in tandem with the release of Windows Mobile 6.5. It is believed to use a 3.8-inch touchscreen, and incorporate features like GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 and a five-megapixel camera. Unlocked pricing is said to be $555.

The HTC Leo should also run WM 6.5, but is described as using a 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen with multi-touch functions. Similarly, the Leo's five-megapixel camera is said to support autofocus. The sources add that a variety of other Taiwanese manufacturers are also working on Snapdragon phones, but that most will not enter bulk production until the first half of 2010.
