Acer has outed an upcoming handset at IFA, the Acer W4, but instead of Android it seems that the new handset will be running on Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7. Not much is known about the device, and based on the photos it does look rather plain and not very eye-catching. Under the hood it sports a 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM and 8GB worth of storage, and it will be running on Windows Phone 7’s Mango (obviously). It will also feature a 5MP camera, and will more than likely come with the typical phone offerings such as WiFi, Bluetooth, etc.

We can’t say that the specs are very impressive, which means we’re most likely looking at an entry level WP7 device, which is good for those who are interested in giving WP7 a spin but unwilling to shell out for a more expensive handset.
