Yesterday, we heard tell that Acer is actively planning WP7 phones for 2011, which has now been confirmed by the company itself. They talked to PocketLint, and we now know:
An Acer spokesperson has confirmed to Pocket-lint that Acer will be joining the Windows Phone 7 party this autumn, with a September or October 2011 launch planned.
Official confirmation? Excellent — the more, the merrier. These releases would be around the time Mango gets put out, so the first big update to the OS, replete with shiny new features — and now new hardware to go with it.
