Acer X960


When Acer announced their intention to take the smartphone world by storm, the response was rather muted. Little information, too many handsets and not much outside of offerings already available from other manufacturers. The X960 is a full-touch...

Simple graphic UI skin, all the key hardware specs are included

Screen reflection, sometimes unresponsive, no 3.5mm jack, poor camera software

Overall it is a relatively middle-of-the-road offering from Acer. From a hardware point of view they provide the key tech specs that smartphone adopters are looking for, combined with the convenience and workplace support that Windows Mobile offers....

Acer X960 review


Sleek and lightweight, the Acer Tempo X960 is black smartphone featuring shiny chrome accents. The phone runs Windows Mobile 6.1 and is primarily aimed at business users.

While we had a few minor gripes, overall the Acer X960 is an excellent smartphone for business users. With Wi-Fi, HSDPA and bluetooth connectivity, it ensures you have fast access to email and web while still offering a more consumer and fun UI.

Sturdy build ; Haptic feedback ; Decent pictures with camera ; LED Flash for low light pictures ; Built-in speakers are of a good quality

Bulky build ; Quite a heavy handset ; Touchscreen very slow to respond ; Acer user interface over Windows Mobile OS

2.8-inch touchscreen ; 3G ; Wi-Fi ; Acer UI ; 3 megapixel camera ; microSD ; A-GPS
