The Acer beTouch E100 was unveiled in a significant October of 2009, quickly entering the market that same month before slipping into discontinuation. This phone was outfitted with cutting-edge circuitry capable of supporting both GSM and HSPA. Broad connection choices were provided by its coverage, which included the GSM 850/900/1800/1900 bands as well as the twin configurations of HSDPA 850/ 1900/2100 and HSDPA 900/2100 bands.
The phone was a partner to a Mini-SIM card and defined its presence with dimensions of 113 x 56 x 12.8 mm and a weight of 118 g. It was fueled by the Qualcomm MSM7225 Snapdragon S1 processor and operated inside the confines of Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional. The lack of a dedicated GPU complemented its efficient 528 MHz ARM 11 CPU.
Memory and Display
In order to expand capacity, the device reserved a microSD card slot, which was in perfect harmony with an internal tapestry that had 512MB of ROM and 256MB of RAM. The TFT resistive touchscreen for the Acer beTouch E100 exhibited a vibrant spectrum of 65K colors. This interface covered a 3.2-inch area and painted graphics with a 240 × 400 pixel resolution.
The device had a single 2 MP camera lens that it used to capture the world. It was capable of capturing videos at a resolution of up to 320p.
The device lacked WLAN but was equipped with Bluetooth 2.0 and A2DP as well as GPS with A-GPS, despite not having WLAN. It made up for the lack of a radio with a USB tiny USB port. In addition to acting as a powerful web browser and HTML player, the device also served as an MP3/WAV/WMA/eAAC+ player, MP4/WMV/H.264 player, and a Pocket Office productivity aid. Predictive text input and voice notes improved usability.
The absence of a 3.5mm audio port and the inclusion of a dedicated loudspeaker are both present in the Acer beTouch E100.
The device’s detachable Li-Ion 1140 mAh battery allows it to run on standby for up to 400 hours or for up to 5 hours while powering talks. It was covered in black clothing and had SAR ratings of 0.69 W/kg for the head and 0.80 W/kg for the body which complied with safety standards. Its value was demonstrated by the marking of its worth at around 180 EUR.
