Acer’s Windows Phone revealed, and it belongs in 2013


At Mobile World Congress today Acer has revealed their long rumoured Windows Phone, and it was probably better that it had remained secret.

The handset, the Acer Liquid M220, which features a 4 inch WVGA screen, 512 MB RAM and 4 GB storage is not exactly inspiring, and does not meet the standards of even Microsoft’s Windows Reference Design devices in 2015. Here is a quick overview of the Acer Liquid M220:
