Generally speaking, if you found a device that looked an awful lot like an HTC Touch HD
with a moderately less-polished UI and a missing 3.5mm audio jack, you'd expect to pay less, right? Makes sense -- but mail.ru
reports in its review of the upcoming F900
from Acer that the high-end WinMo piece will run 25,000 rubles when it launches in Russia later this month, which translates to a whopping $745. Granted, you get a gargantuan WVGA display, 3G, GPS, WiFi, and all the trimmings, but the lack of a standard headphone jack is a huge miss -- and from the review's gallery, it's crystal clear just how far these guys have to go to catch up with HTC's stellar TouchFLO 3D
. In the final analysis, they reach the predictable conclusion: unless you're a hardcore ex-E-TENer looking for your latest fix, the phone just gets walloped by better, cheaper competition.
