Acer Iconia Smart arrives in September, doesn't apologize for being late


Five months is a very long time to wait for the large-handed smartphone addict, but finally there is some good news, everybody! We previewed Acer's massive 4.8-inch phone / tablet hybrid back in February and it looked like it would arrive in the U.S. sometime in April. It's now August and and according to Acer's Facebook page, we still have a month to wait. The phoneblet (Yes, there's already a name) retains the same specs we heard about in February: Snapdragon processor, twin cameras and Android 2.3 Gingerbread. When it finally does arrive, it'll cost Europeans €499 -- around $710.
