Acer’s Cloudmobile smart phone released in Asia and Europe

Synchronizing your computer with whatever photos and videos you capture and record on your smart phone is a big thing. Different Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) have their own different ways of making this possible, with different kinds of wireless solutions included. And these days, the way you make this possible is a big selling point for these companies. For example, Lenovo has its Lenovo Cloud which helps you synchronize all the photos and videos from your smart phone to the cloud, which can then be accessed on your computer easily.

Acer, another well known personal computer manufacturer, which has entered the smart phone market as well, has ousted its new offering, the Acer Cloudmobile S500. The company has already made the smart phone available in the Taiwanese stores, and also in other parts of Asia and Europe.

The smart phone was first revealed at the Computex trade show earlier this month. The smart phone runs on Google’s Android 4.0, also known as Ice Cream Sandwich. The smart phone has a 4.3 inch capacitive touch screen display, a 1.5 GHz dual core processor, 8 mega pixel camera on the back. And for media consuming uses, the smart phone offers 8 GB of internal storage. If you think that is not enough for you, you can always expand the storage capacity of with the help of a microSD card.

The main attraction here, with this smart phone, is that the smart phone offers Acer’s cloud storage, as a backup. All the pictures you take and the videos you record on the smart phone will be automatically uploaded to the cloud. And if you think you will be short of cloud storage, the service will be automatically deleted a month old photos from the cloud. That means you will have to download and backup these photos to your computer before a month.

The smart phone will be sold for NT14,900 (US$510) for the 8 GB version. So are you interested? Any buyers?
