Summary: The Acer Tempo M900 smart phone offers a good range of features and is a decent-enough performer. But its ugly, dated design falls far short of that of competitors, like HTC's Touch Pro2, and its build quality doesn't inspire confidence either
Excerpt: We first heard about the Acer Tempo M900 at Mobile World Congress 2009. Many were super impressed by what looked to be a strong competitor for the also freshly-announced Touch Pro2 from HTC. The design of the M900 looked sleek, the specs sounded impressive, and the huge 3.8" screen even trumped that of the Touch Pro2 in terms of size. What’s more, the device would support USA 3G bands. Though it looks good on paper, how does the M900 perform in real world testing?
Summary: Ever heard of the term "living vicariously"? It's what parents do when they send their kids to elite schools they themselves wish they had attended. With only the n-series PDAs to its name, Acer's previous dabblings in the handheld market were minimal. Now, through its adopted child E-TEN, the Taiwanese laptop giant hopes to obtain bragging rights against incumbents like HTC in the Windows Mobile device space.
