The official announcement for the Acer beTouch E130 came back in mid-June and since then new information has remained quite. Well, it now looks like the beTouch E130 has received the approval of the FCC. In short, that is good news for anyone that may have been hoping to be able to make a purchase.

Otherwise, the E130 may come as a mixed blessing for some. Lets just say it like this, the handset has a nice form factor, and one that could help to convert some users that have stuck with the BlackBerry for design as opposed to software. In other words, the Acer beTouch E130 sort of looks like a BlackBerry. Then again its going to arrive with the already dated Android 1.6, and so far there has not been any mention of a planned upgrade.

Moving on though, other features of the beTouch E130 include a 2.6 inch QVGA touchscreen display, 416MHz processor, 512MB ROM, 256MB RAM, Wi-Fi and a 3.2 megapixel camera.

With that, we are still left wondering which carriers will end up picking up the beTouch E130. That and, there was still no FCC mention of the beTouch E120, which was introduced at the same time as the E130.
