Acer beTouch E130 review

 

The Acer beTouch E130 features a finger-friendly BlackBerry-style qwerty keypad and trackball - rare gems in the touchscreen-heavy Android market, which make tapping out emails a breeze.

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 Review

 

It's clear that a lot of people will look at the Acer E130 as another BlackBerry clone, which is running on the Android operating system. However, the reality is that this is more of a clone of an Nokia E-series device, like the E5 or the E72 than a...

It’s nice to see a smartphone with a BlackBerry form-factor that runs on Android, to give heavy texters and emailers some more choice, but with the lower-resolution display and Android 1.6, there are many limitations. The keyboard also needs a light...

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 ...

The Acer beTouch E130 is an interesting take on the Android based smartphone. It will appeal to a niche of users who like the idea of relatively easy text generation on the physical keyboard, don't require a large screen for multimedia work, and don't...

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

of candy bar handset designs, you're probably also disappointed at the lack of Android smartphones available in this format. Acer's here to save the day, though, with its forthcoming Betouch E130.

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.

Ever fancied an Blackberryespue looking phone powered by Android? Well the Acer beTouch e130 should raise an eyebrow!
