WP7.nl have reviewed the new Acer Allegro, a low-end Windows Phone which sells for only 299.00 Euro without contract.
The handset appeared competent enough, being as fast and slick as all Windows Phone 7 handsets tend to be, and comes with useful extras such as a DLNA app.
The 1 Ghz, 8GB, 5 megapixel device is however also the very first completely devoid of a flash, and the camera is also nothing worth writing home about.
Now in this second wave of Windows phones we see more budget units on the market, and it is nice to see that in the case of Windows Phone platform so no huge dent in the experience of using this OS. If you do not attach importance to a decent camera in your smartphone, then get you a competitive price an excellent smartphone into the house where not much to be noted.
It has some flaws such as hyper-sensitive camera button and the still very meagre 8GB of memory, but also are worth the money I think, and also the battery life is more than enough for your average busy day to help.

- No camera flash
