Cloud computing is starting to be the next big buzzword thrown about, and with everyone wanting to hop aboard the cloud bandwagon, it goes without saying that Acer, too, wants a slice of the cloud pie. The only thing is, when you call a particular device the Acer CloudMobile, it is rather disappointing that there is nothing about the phone which has a dedicated cloud storage service. Nada – good thing the Acer CloudMobile was shown off at a press event in Italy recently, resulting in the YouTube video that you can watch above. The smartphone is really sleek to look at, and as a testament to its design, it already picked up an iF design award prior to its official launch.
Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is the operating system of choice, while it carries a 4.3″ 720p display with on-screen virtual controls, similar in nature to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. What you see above will also reveal a separate row of capacitive keys that are located below the display, but since it is just a prototype, the final build might be very different in nature. Other hardware specifications include a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel camera, HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC connectivity.
