Acer Allegro, Acer’s first Windows Phone, is released in France

While Acer said earlier this year that it would be onboard with WP7, and it recently made good on that promise with the release of the Acer Allegro in France, its first WP7 based device.

The phone sports a Qualcomm MSM8255 processor, 8GB Memory, 5-megapixel camera with LED Flash. The display is 3.6 inch WVGA screen with 480×800 resolution. Its size is 11.6 x 5.9 x 13mm, and weighs 126g.

The specs aren’t that strong, and it looks like Acer is targeting the lower end smartphone market. Although an interesting feature in the phone is the Fast Charge Technology, which is said to completely charge the phone 2.5 times fast than other smartphones.

The phone’s price will be 299 Euros (around 420 dollars, 1530 dirhams)  will be released in mid November in France. It is still unclear whether the phone will be released in other countries and parts of the world.
