The Windows Phone platform is still not very well supported by mobile device manufacturers, even though Microsoft has cut licensing costs, and for some devices it’s free. So far, the conditions of the American concern have prompted Acer to plan for a whole new device next year.
Acer about three years ago had an episode with the Microsoft Phone system when it introduced the ebay smartphone W4 with Windows Phone 7.5. It was a model equipped with a small 3.6-inch screen and a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. The manufacturer has installed a 1 GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon chip with an Adreno 205 graphics chip, as well as 8 GB of usable memory.
The platform was not as refined as it is now, so the device was not very popular. So the manufacturer has resigned from successive devices on this system, claiming that investing in it carries with it a high risk of failure. Now it seems that he changed his mind.
Recent reports suggest that for the first half of next year, Acer plans to launch a new Windows Phone smartphone. However, nothing is known about its technical specifications.
