Acer X960 unboxing video

We reviewed the Acer DX900 a few weeks ago and Steve was reasonably impressed with it, especially with the flexibility offered by the dual-SIM cards. This X960 could well be considered as the DX900 little brother, both having quite similar specification but the X960 only having the single SIM card.


The Acer X960

Once again Acer have come up with a reasonable looking handset. I think it looks similar to the XDA Zest in styling but the Eten design influence is still apparent in my opinion.


No compromises. Acer Tempo X960 has everything you’ve ever dreamt of in a smartphone: GPS, PDA, camera, MP3 player and a widget-based friendly interface for instant access to the web, email and your life online

Who says you need more than one device to organize your life on the go? Meet the Acer Tempo X960. Browse the web, read and reply to emails, socialize online and of course make phone calls: the Acer Tempo X960 was designed for adventure. And with GPS software pre-installed, you’ll always know how to get there.

A high-resolution 2.8-inch VGA touchscreen and five-way navigation button allow easy manoeuvring. The intuitive widget-based user interface provides quick access to all your contacts, emails and messages, browser and bookmarks, calendar and events, date and time, world weather and music player.
