Computex: Acer CloudMobile S500

Computex: Acer CloudMobile S500

We spotted this android smartphone at the Acer booth — an Acer CloudMobile S500 that sports a Snapdragon S4 processor running at 1.5GHz dual-core.

Despite the apparent low supply of Qualcomm’s Krait processors, we’re surprised Acer managed to snag a batch for the S500. The specifications of the CloudMobile S500 isn’t bad either.

Acer CloudMobile S500 specs:
4.3″ 720p HD LCD display @ 720×1280 pixels, 351ppi
Qualcomm SnapDragon S4 processor 1.5GHz dual-core
8GB internal storage
up to 32GB via microSD
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 4.0
GPS with aGPS support
8MP rear camera with LED flash
1080p video recording
Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich


The only missing info on the specs sheet is the battery capacity although we are hoping it would be rated more than 1500mAh.

Then again, the question is — will Acer eventually bring the handset to the Philippines? We’ve heard that Acer is pulling out its mobile division from the Philippines so it’s likely we won’t see the S500 here.

    It shoot videos @1080p full HD resolution but, then again its screen resolution is only capable of 720p? (Not sure if my understanding is right. Just comment here anyway to correct me if I’m wrong thanks.) Thou it’s pixel density is very very very impressive!

      You can output the 1080p to an HDTV via HDMI port.

      whoa first you sir abe to leave a reply on my comment! hahaha (just really happy) BTW ain’t that a hassle scenario? I mean, just to clearly see the full details of your video recording you always have to attach it to a larger screen or monitor via HDMI? Well the phone actually is pretty edge-y with those specs (well obviously except the screen resolution) it really can compete with other smartphones out there.

  4. Neil says:

    The Sony Xperia S has 720p resolution and 4.3-inch screen too right? If so then they just have the same ppi.

  5. Neil says:

    Ah I see. Sir Abe, it has 1280×800 resolution as opposed to 720p on Xperia S. So it has 351 ppi then. :D #correction

  6. Ron says:

    It has an Xperia NXT vibe to it, I like it. But it’s an Acer. :(
