Acer Iconia Smart Spotted at FCC; May Land on AT&T in the US

April 27, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

If you have been wondering what happened to the earlier announced Acer Iconia Smart mini-tablet/smartphone, we have some interesting news.

You may not have forgotten Acer’s announcement last February that the device would hit stores by April 2011. It didn’t happen yet but as we keep on waiting, we have chanced upon the device at the FCC gates.

The Acer Iconia Smart comes featuring a Snapdragon processor that runs at 1GHz. It offers a 4.8-inch display with a 1024×480 resolution. Two cameras: a  2 megapixel front-facing camera, and another rear-facing 8 megapixel camera LED flash and 720p video capture. On the storage front, Acer has thrown in 8GB built-in storage. That goes along with the 512MB of ROM/RAM.

Another significant aspect regarding the latest report is that the US version of the Iconia Smart is more likely to land on AT&T. This is because AT&T is the only carrier whose 3G bands support the phone’s 850, 1900 and 2100MHz frequencies.

So far neither carrier has announced the device nor has Acer named any official launch date yet. But we do expect the Gingerbread-powered device to hit stores soon. And while soon doesn’t mean this month, it should be out maybe early May.
