Acer Android phone “likely” to be released in 2009

We have seen reports about how Acer was expected to launch two Android handsets in 2009 and even had one rumored for a September release but it seems that may not be the case. According to Aymar de Lencquesaing who is the Head of Mobile Phone Products for Acer;

“We have not made any formal announcement of an Android- based device, although it’s likely that we’ll have one in 2009,”

Bottom line, it looks like Acer is intent on launching an Android-powered phone, however it also seems like they are taking their time. Initially, it sounds like frustrating news, despite being the “year of Android” we have seen not as many announcements as many expected. Of course, the slower pace on the part of Acer could hopefully lead to a nicer device in the long run.
