Acer Allegro launches in Taiwan

The Acer Allegro, which has just become available in France, has also been launched in Taiwan today.

The handset is being billed as the cheapest Windows Phone 7 phone and features a 3.6 inch screen, 1 ghz Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon processor, 512MB RAM and 8GB storage. China has recently overtaken the US as the biggest smartphone market, making these lower-end handsets essential if Windows Phone 7 is to be a player there.

The handset will be available in sky blue and pearl white,  and comes with an extra battery and is expected to become available on the 11/30 at Synnex stores.

The smarthpone has a  battery capacity of 1,300 mAh, according to official figures, and can support up to 17.5 days of standby time, or 9 hours of talk time.

Interestingly Sogi.tw.com appear to confirm the phone does not have a flash, a first for Windows Phone 7.
