The Acer Stream also has support for 802.11n WiFi which is rather rare among smartphones.

As usual with Android phone, Acer has customized the UI adding a few spinning panels, app history shortcuts other tweaks. They have also added support for UPNP and DLNA streaming media.

The Acer Stream also has dedicated media keys, and an HDMI port for video output. The whole thing is just 11.2 mm thick and also packs an FM radio with RDS together with Dolby Mobile support. The new smartphone was recently spotted clearing the FCC which suggests a US release.
