Acer Iconia Smart to land in Europe this September

Widescreen wizard turns up unfashionably late to the smartphone party

When we get our paws on a new smartphone, we get restless until it gets a proper release. So after our hands-on with the Acer Iconia Smart in February, it's been a long six months that we've tried to fill with other distractions.

Acer Germany has just announced on its Facebook page that the Iconia Smart will finally be released there in September so we're crossing fingers and toes that the UK will get its own slice of the 4.8in screen, 8MP camera and Android 2.3 Gingerbread action too. That's right, no change in specs but we're still excited about the phone that thinks its a cinema. Based on the European prices, you'll be looking at parting with around £440 for the sim-free model. Then again, we'd wager a multiplex would cost you at least double that.
