Acer DX900 review

 

Acer's dual-SIM Windows Mobile smart phone still has a way to go

Dual SIM design ; GPRS ; Psb interface ; Touchscreen ; Wi-Fi

No haptic feedback ; Can be slow ; Bit ugly ; 3.0 MP camera

Apart from the dodgy looks and some weak features the DX900 is a pretty well equipped smartphone and should be considered for the dual SIM card functionality

Acer - DX900

 

Smartphones are widely available and Windows Mobile based smartphones are plentiful. But there aren't many smartphones, Windows Mobile based or not, which can accommodate two SIMs. That is the great lure of Acer's DX900. You can ...

If you want dual SIM support in a Windows Mobile device your choices are limited, and this one is certainly worth considering. But if you are choosing a phone for other reasons there are slicker, sleeker options out there.

Acer DX900 Review

 

Acer's new twin-SIM phone didn't have to be the size of two phones!

The DX900 was supposed to be released in 2008, but with the original manufacturer being bought out by Acer, it was delayed – and is now starting to look somewhat dated compared to the competition.

Acer Tempo X960 Windows Mobile smartphone

 

Functional, but not very distinctive and the styling feels a bit retro

Acer's second Windows Mobile handset is an improvement on its first but - its swishy UI aside - there's not really much to distinguish it from the other Windows Mobile 6.1 devices out there. Sure, it does the job, but the impression we get is that Acer...

Acer DX900 Dual-SIM mobile review

 

Carry two mobiles phones? Now you can use two SIM cards in one phone with the first dual-SIM mobile in the UK - the Acer DX900.

The Acer DX900 is pretty handy if you normally carry two mobiles around with you. It has it quirks like most devices, but hopefully other manufacturers will learn from Acer’s lead and start to produce more dual-SIM devices with better usability and...

Acer DX900 review

 

Imagine if it was 1985. The Acer DX900 PDA-slash-phone would be awesome. Unfortunately, it's 2009 and PDAs are old news…

Dual-SIM function works perfectly, good touch-screen

Primitive, unintuitive user interface, stylus required for many functions including typing

There are much better, easier to use options for PDA-style phones on the market.

I think that it is a great step forward and hope that now it has been done others will develop and improve the concept, making smaller, lighter and better spec'd devices in the future

Acer DX900 review

 

We review the Acer DX900, the computer giant's first mobile phone

Dual SIM support ; HSDPA ; Nice front end on top of Windows Mobile

Slightly chunky ; Average battery life ; TV-Out cables not included

If you want a handset with dual SIM support and smartphone capabilities then this could be right up your street
