Summary: As a swansong for Microsoft's Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system, the Acer neoTouch P300 isn't particularly impressive, despite its robust construction and eminently useable slide-out keyboard
Pros: Slide-out Qwerty keyboard; solid design; Microsoft Exchange support.
Cons: Slow CPU and operating system; Windows Mobile 6.5 is a mess; weak battery; resistive touchscreen.
Conclusion: Although Acer seems to have produced a slightly disappointing phone in many ways, it was never destined to be a high-flying, cutting-edge, do-it-all device. It is a budget smartphone and it certainly feels like one, but for the price, you’d be hard pressed to find a better alternative. If you have the cash, I would recommend something along the lines of the HTC Touch Pro2, as it’s generally better in every way, but at the cost of added bulk.
Excerpt: The Acer neoTouch P300 is one of the few new phones that comes with Windows Mobile 6.5.3, the last version of Microsoft's mobile OS before the new version, Windows Phone 7, launches this Christmas. If you're on a Microsoft Exchange company network, Windows Mobile offers many features to make accessing your work contacts, emails and calendars easier. The familiar Windows interface makes it easy to set up access to email, contacts and calendars via Exchange ActiveSync.
Excerpt: L’ Acer neoTouch P300 è uno smartphone consumer ideale per chi necessita di combinare vita privata e vita professionale. La sua particolarità è quella di essere provvisto sia di una tastiera qwerty a scomparsa sia un display touchscreen, da 3,2 pollici, con una risoluzione di 240x400 pixel e da 65 mila colori, in modo da offrire diversi metodi di utilizzo.
