Acer Android-based A1 priced for Europe

Acer's Android-based A1 handset will soon be available for sale in at least France and Germany according to a listing at electronics retailer Expansys. Though the listing has since been pulled, it allowed a look at the device's specs. Previously rumored to arrive in September, the device will get Android 2.0 (with "Donut" features like device-wide search) and will be powered by Qualcomm's relatively speedy 768MHz 8250 CPU. A 3.5-inch touchscreen with an 800x480 resolution will serve as the core interface.

The device will have tri-band HSPA/WCDMA network support for 3G along with quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE networks. There should also be integrated GPS, Bluetooth 2.0 and Wi-Fi. An autofocus 5-megapixel camera is also included. Wired headphones can be hooked up to an 3.5mm audio jack. The Expansys site also revealed a purchase price, set at the equivalent of $571, but no release date. [via AndroidGuys]
