Acer DX900 unboxing video

The Acer DX900 is one of the first, if not the first Dual-SIM Windows Mobile handsets to be sold here in the UK. The DX900 will allow you to combine your work and personal mobile numbers in to one handset which means that many will be able to carry one instead of two phones!

This is the first handset to be released by Acer since they acquired E-Ten last year. There is a lot about the DX900 that reminds us of earlier Glofiish products.

The Acer DX900 allows you to have uninterrupted access to two separate phone services, for example; one for business and one personal, or one for calls and another for data, in a single device. Frequent business travelers can use local SIM card and home SIM card in the same device at the same time.  International business and cross boarder travelling becomes so much easier with this device from Acer.

The DX900 features support for both high-speed 3.5G (UMTS/HSDPA) and 2G (GSM/EDGE) communications, as well as GPS and Wi-Fi connectivity, a high-resolution VGA display, and a 3-megapixel auto-focus camera.

We’ll be reviewing the DX900 over the next couple of weeks so for now we hope you enjoy the unboxing video:

Windows Mobile answer the Facebook questions

image We reported a while ago that the Windows Mobile Team were asking for questions on their Facebook channel and they have eventually got round to answering some of the questions thrown at them. Unfortunately there is no order to the questions and answers so we have put them together to make it easy to follow. As expected a lot of “we can’t comment on that at this time” answers but there is some interesting information none the less. Take a look after the break, there are quite a few questions.
