Acer is blowing up with neoTouch and beTouch, more Android and Windows on the way

Acer isn’t showing any signs of slowing down at Mobile World Congress this week. Just this morning, the manufacturer announced the Liquid e and now we have the neoTouch and beTouch. A little strange with the name scheme, but let’s see just what these devices are packing, shall we?

Acer’s neoTouch P300, which has a 3.2″ touch screen and full QWERTY keyboard, and P400 are running Windows Mobile 6.5.3, the stepping-stone OS between 6.5 and 7. With Windows Phone 7 coming later this year, it’s hard to see why one would choose the P300 or P400 over the latest and greatest. Perhaps it could just be a matter of patience.

If Windows Mobile isn’t your thing, the beTouch series are running Android. The beTouch E110 is dragging Android Cupcake (1.5) along – an odd, bare-bones choice given what’s already out there for Android. It’s also sporting a small, 2.8″ QVGA touch screen which tells me that this is more of a minor step up from a feature phone. Acer’s beTouch E400 has a 3.2″ HVGA touch screen, a little nicer than the E110, and is dressed in Android Eclair or 2.1.

Having more options is always nice, but Acer really could have stepped things up a little more for its latest crop. We’ll see if it has any tricks left in its sleeve for MWC.
