Acer's beTouch E130 offers an affordable entry-point to Google Android, and its good connectivity options, social apps and combination of a touchscreen interface and qwerty keypad make this smartphone ideal for both work and play. It's restricted to...

Acer beTouch E130 Review


The Acer beTouch E130 is really a bit of a jack of all trades.

Average camera and a sometimes-lacking touchscreen

The beTouch may have the looks and performance, but it doesn't seem to know what it wants to be. Is it going to be a BlackBerry rival, or aim for the mainstream market as an Android phone with a keyboard? It doesn't fully achieve either, but does have...

Acer - beTouch E130


Acer's range of smartphones is wide and varied. The company offers both Windows Mobile and Android handsets, at high, mid range and low prices. Sitting at the lower end of the scale is the beTouch E130 ...

Acer Betouch E130 smartphone


Decent design, but it has to make do with Android 1.6

Decent touchscreen performance, good qwerty keypad, stylish looks, reasonable price

Flimsy back cover, small screen not great for browsing, basic camera

Acer beTouch E130 Mobile Phone Review


Acer mixes the form factor of the BlackBerry with the power of an Android.

Good connectivity, great form-factor and awesome battery life

Small resistive screen, older version of Android and slow performance

Next to the trackball, you have six buttons- the call and end buttons are full height and easy to press but the remaining four buttons- home, back, menu and search can get accidentally pressed because of their small size.
