Two new smartphones from Acer will be available in some markets early next month, while the company's two premium handsets, the M900 and F900 will be out later in the second quarter, according to company representatives.

The world's third largest computer vendor last month announced four new 3G touchscreen smartphones that use Microsoft's Windows Mobile OS.

The DX900 will be available by the end of this month, according to Vincent Chen, manager of product marketing at Acer's Smart Handheld Business.

The device is a 3G touchscreen smartphone that holds two SIM cards. One of the SIM card slots supports HSDPA (high speed downlink packet access), while the other supports EDGE (enhanced data rates for GSM evolution).

The Acer X960 will be out by early next month. The device has a 2.8-inch touchscreen as well as a five-way navigation button under the screen. It includes GPS functions, a 3.2-megapixel digital camera, music player and more.

The company's two premium handsets, M900 and F900, which sport 3.8-inch touchscreens, will be on world markets later in the second quarter.

The F900 is the more stylish of the two, thinner and meant for just about anyone. The M900 has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and is aimed at business users.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
