Acer beTouch E101 unboxing video

Acer have launched a number of new handsets recently from the Android powered Acer Liquid that we reviewed recently to several Windows Mobile 6.5 handsets including the Acer beTouch E101 that we are looking at here.

The beTouch range includes several handsets, the E101 being the entry level followed by the E100 and then the S200. The E101 and E100 are virtually the same handset but the E100 has 3G where the E101 does not.

The Acer beTouch E101 is very much an entry level device and is probably the best value for money Windows Mobile 6.5 handset on the market. You can pick one up for £150 (+VAT) from Clove Technology. While the E101 is undoubtedly an budget handset don’t be fooled in to thinking it’s overly basic. It has a generous 3.2″ display, a decent amount of RAM/ROM and still manages to squeeze in GPS and Google Maps!

The Acer E101 and the E100 are available in both Black and White, the E100 offering 3G connectivity on top of the specification of the E101.

We’ll be reviewing the E100 over the next week or so and will have the review live as soon as it’s complete. Take a look at the unboxing video below where I’ll take you on a tour of the hardware and briefly dip in to the OS/UI.
