Acer floats Cloud Mobile smartphone

Acer's Cloud Mobile will come with NFC

Acer is expected to demonstrate another NFC smartphone at this week’s Mobile World Congress. The Cloud Mobile is a sleek, black handset with a business-like design and a 4.3-inch screen, 1.5GHz dual-core processor and NFC.

The Cloud Mobile will ship with Android 4 and promises support for the new Acer Cloud personal cloud storage system that is also being built into Acer PCs.

The device, which recently scooped an iF product design award, is expected to launch globally in the third quarter of 2012. Acer adds the CloudMobile to its other NFC phones, the Liquid Express and the Liquid Glow.

A video posted by Italian phone blog Telefonino shows the handset in action:
