Acer M900 Strikes A Pose

Here we have the Acer M900. This device looks to be aimed at the business user or the security conscience, boasting a Full QWERTY keyboard and fingerprint sensor, but is also sporting a 5MP camera with flash, 3.5 mm headphone jack, and some other multi-media goodness. What business user would not want all of that at their disposal? Has this device been underrated?

The device is rocking a huge 3.8 inch 800×480 flush screen, scrollwheel, and is thinner than the Touch Pro 2. Not to mention that this sucker is running WinMo Pro 6.1, and is already compatible with Windows Mobile 6.5! Sounds good to us.

The M900 is using the Samsung S3C 6410 mobile processor at 533 MHz, and although the UI looks remarkably familiar to SPB Mobile Shell, “Acer said that it is their proprietary platform sitting on Windows.” Interesting.

Just for kicks, here is a full list of the specifications:
