Acer Will Produce WP7 Phones This Year

We’ve been patiently waiting for Acer to get off their rears and produce a WP7 phone since September, and if Digitimes is to be believed, we’re going to have to wait a little while longer. While not a very precise statement, they’re saying that Acer will produce a WP7 handset in 2011, though without giving any more information about when or where they will be available.

Acer plans to launch Windows Phone 7 (WP7)-based smartphones in 2011 in addition to Android-based models and projects its total shipments of smartphones to reach several million units for the year, according to Aymar de Lencquesaing, president of Acer’s Smart Handheld Business Group (SHBG).

The more the merrier for WP7, especially with news of Motorola’s ditching of the platform.
