Acer’s upcoming beTouch E130 smartphone does look like some form of a BlackBerry handheld at first glance, but booting it up will reveal an Android operating system running things from behind the scene. Currently on parade at Computex 2010, the Acer beTouch E130 is equipped with a 2.6″ QVGA touchscreen display, an optical navigation pad and full QWERTY keyboard to make typing easier, especially for those who have yet to get used to a virtual keyboard. You can always stay connected via 3G whenever there is no Wi-Fi network around, while a 3.2-megapixel camera helps you capture those tender moments in decent detail. Other features include 256MB RAM 512MB ROM, a 416 MHz processor and a microSDHG memory card slot. The major drawback? Acer seems to be decidedly lazy by releasing it with Android 1.6, which means it is still far off from an Android 2.1 or 2.2 update just yet.
