The Acer Stream, a new Android 2.1 phone with an AMOLED screen has just surged into view from the Taiwanese tech maker. It’s touting the Stream as a mobile entertainment dream machine. Read on for the specs and let us know if you agree…

The Acer Stream has a 3.7in WVGA AMOLED display with a 2000:1 contrast ration. Inside there’s 3G, Bluetooth,  Wi-Fi n, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. And while we’re drooling over Android 2.2 Froyo, it’s running the still tasty Android 2.1 Eclair OS.

The 5MP camera packed into the Acer Stream will record 720p HD video and there’s HDMI to hook it up to your telly. Its 2GB of internal memory can be bumped up to 32GB via micro-SD card. The Acer Stream also packs in an FM Radio with RDS and GPS for navigation and geotagging snaps.

We’re also promised an HTC Sense style UI running on top of Android 2.1 which Acer says will let you switch between photos and video in a 3D interface. That’ll also apparently carry through to 3D games and rather intriguingly Acer says you’ll be able to unlock the Acer Stream with a “peeling” gesture.

Pricing and availability for the Acer Stream hasn’t been announced yet but we’ve nudged Acer UK for details.

Let us know what you think of the Acer Stream. Could it tempt you away from the HTC Desire or the similarly AMOLED-packing charms of the Samsung Wave?

    That is a RIDICULOUS looking phone. Sales = none.

      I think it looks quite nice – but my problem is that Acer doesn’t even seem to be trying to get networks to bite on its phones.
