Remember reading about the Acer Allegro, which had earlier updated you about as the Acer W4?  Acer’s first handset to run Windows Phone 7.5 Mango OS was in the news early in this month. The smartphone is now on a trip to France.

A mid-range device, the Allegro comes with impressive specs and simple classic design that enthusiasts would love to own. It is equipped with  a 3.6-inch WVGA LCD screen with 800 x 480 resolutions, 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 processor and 8GB of internal memory.

The integrated 5-megapixel camera with the LED flash could come in handy when you think of capturing images and recording videos.

It supports Bluetooth 2.1+ EDR, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, A-GPS and sensors like accelerometer, proximity sensor, light sensor and accounts. A 1300mAh battery backs the 126g device that comes in 11.6 x 5.9 x 13mm dimensions.

One of the outstanding features of the Allegro when compared with other Windows Phone handsets is its Fast Charge technology. With this new feature, the smartphone will be charged 2.5 times faster than the company’s tablets and phones.

Allegro, available in white and dark blue iceberg hues, will be released in France by mid-November, for a price of €299. Stay tuned to know when the Allegro would make its way to the rest of the markets worldwide.
