Acer smartphones to hit markets soon

Two of Acer's new smartphones will be out soon, while the M900 and F900 will be out later in the second quarter

Two new smartphones from Acer will be available in some markets early next month, while the company's two premium handsets, the M900 and F900 will be out later in the second quarter, according to company representatives.

The world's third largest computer vendor last month announced four new 3G touchscreen smartphones that use Microsoft's Windows Mobile OS.

The DX900 will be available by the end of this month, according to Vincent Chen, manager of product marketing at Acer's Smart Handheld Business.

The device is a 3G touchscreen smartphone that holds two SIM cards. One of the SIM card slots supports HSDPA (high speed downlink packet access), while the other supports EDGE (enhanced data rates for GSM evolution).

The Acer X960 will be out by early next month. The device has a 2.8-inch touchscreen as well as a five-way navigation button under the screen. It includes GPS functions, a 3.2-megapixel digital camera, music player and more.

The company's two premium handsets, M900 and F900, which sport 3.8-inch touchscreens, will be on world markets later in the second quarter.

The F900 is the more stylish of the two, thinner and meant for just about anyone. The M900 has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and is aimed at business users.

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.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
