Aside from the usual big names to watch out for at the Mobile World Congress happening in February, we can also look forward to Acer debuting their first smartphone.

This, in turn, will likewise end months of speculation on whether Acer will truly join the mobile phone industry or not. There are no details available as to what their first mobile phone will look like or what feature it will come with, but based on the available agenda for the said event, it is confirmed to be a smartphone and February 16 will be the big launch day.

Will it be a QWERTY-laden smartphone or a full touchscreen device? It’s still anybody’s guess at the moment, but our money is on a QWERTY phone at the moment as it is the safest design choice to go for especially if you’re a newbie in the market.
