Acer, the third largest vendor in the global PC market, has set its eyes on the ever-growing mobile phone market, after last year's acquisition of E-Ten Information Systems.

Acer officially introduced 4 phones from their new Tempo smartphone series at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona - the X960, F900, M900 and DX900.

Acer Tempo X960
The X960 features a 2.8-inch VGA TFT LCD touch screen, 3G HSDPA/HSUPA Connectivity, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth and a 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus. It runs on Windows Mobile 6.1 operating system with a Samsung mobile processor.

Acer Tempo F900
The F900 features an even larger wide-screen touch display at 3.8-inches. It also runs on Windows Mobile 6.1 and features 3G HSDPA/HSUPA Connectivity, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth and a 3 megapixel camera with autofocus.

Acer Tempo M900
The M900 features a large 3.8” WVGA touch screen, Windows Mobile 6.1, Outlook Mobile and a sliding physical keyboard, similar to that of the recently launched HTC Touch Pro2 and the Nokia E75.

This designed-for-business smartphone features more or less the same features as the F900, but Acer has also included a fingerprint reader, which makes sure that only you can access your data.

Acer Tempo DX900
Acer takes it a step further with the DX900, by creating the world’s first dual-sim smartphone to support both 3G and 2G SIMs. Yes, this means that you'll get to have both your 2G and 3G sim-cards on one phone, without having to bring two phones around everywhere like you're used to all this while.

There's no word on when these phones will be released, or at how much they'll be priced, but we'll keep you posted.
