Acer have just officially announced the launch of the new beTouch E120 and the E130 Android based smartphones. The E120 will be available form mid-July while the E130 will land in August. The devices share some common features but their form factor is quite different; the E130 has a QWERTY keyboard.
In terms of the specifications that they share, both devices will offer 3G+, high speed browing and download (HSDPA), WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS pre-installed. Furthermore, they offer a basic 3.2 megapixel digital camera, for "quick and easy shooting of unexpected moments", along with a Radio FM. The upside is both devices will pack a 1500 mAh battery that should really help considering the screens on both of the devices are on the smaller side compared to the superphones we have seen of late.
