COMPUTEX - Acer wheels out Ferrari PDA

Acer plans to begin selling a Ferrari PDA during the third quarter.

Acer plans to start selling a Ferrari PDA (personal digital assistant), adding to a line of Ferrari-branded computer gear that already includes notebook PCs and a monitor.

The black PDA has candy-apple red trim and runs Windows Mobile software. It's officially called the Ferrari Racing Personal Navigator, a reference to its built-in GPS (global positioning system), and bears a strong family resemblance to Acer's c500 PDA.

While the two PDAs may look alike, they use different hardware under the hood, according to Acer. Detailed specifications were not available. The Ferrari PDA comes with special wallpaper that features Ferrari cars, and it offers special sound effects, such as the sound of a roaring engine, for various user actions, the company said.

Other specifications include ALK CoPilot version 6 navigation software, a slot for an SD (Secure Digital) card, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. The PDA will first be available in Europe beginning during the third quarter. Pricing has yet to be determined.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
