    Nice display, but why 1.6?

    The first thing you should do is update the phones section. It’s still even in rumored. It would even be better to make the phones section database driven so one can compare the items better.

    Does this phone work on the US 3G+ Bands? (e.g. ATT, Rogers, T-Mobile)?

    @esperanto
    they should eliminate it because it’s clear they aren’t bright or dedicated enough to make it work. just go to phonescoop or mobiledia or something…

  • Shreedhan

    Mine will be arriving tomorrow. Can’t wait.

  • The Wagster

    Anyone found any reviews yet?

  • Patrick C

    So what does everyone think – buy this or wait for the Bravo/Passion? (potentially April!)

    And for the love of god either update or just remove the phones section!

    @TNF
    Probably due to development freeze before release. (And some companies have a long time between “done in development” and “released”) Since they’ve said 2.0 will be available shortly after launch.

    @JLW
    if it really is tri band on the HSPDA frequencies then it will work on both tmo and at&t networks. granted at&t uses 1900 primarily and 850 in lots of places for better coverage … so you could expect the same performance on at&t 3g as they had a couple years ago before they started the 850 overlay. short version, though, yes it’ll work on all gsm north american 3g providers.

  • Gabe

    It will not work on the US 3G bands. Those would be 1700/2100 (not the same as euro 2100) for T-Mobile and 850/1800 Mhz for Att. It will work on the GSM bands though.

  • Tim W

    @Gabe,

    You should look at your frequencies again… David is right. AT&T uses 850 and 1900.

  • Phil

    Clove had been told by Acer that they would be getting the 850/1900/2100 version of this phone for HSDPA frequencies. However once the stock arrived, they quickly updated their site to display 900/1900/2100 as that is what they had been sent.

    Very sad :(

    I want a snapdragon android phone on 850MHz. Why are none of the good phones on 850Mhz!!!!

  • Gabe

    @Tim You’re right. It will work on att.

  • Martijn

    The main questions for those who want to buy this phone;
    – Where is the black and red version?
    – How does the battery perform?

    Hopefully those questions will be answered soon :-)

  • Martin

    I live in Germany, but I got it (from eXpansys). It’s a really good phone. Blazing fast too, no comparison to my G1. :)

    @Martijn: Red and Black will be released next year. Only white now…
