There are reports that the Acer Android smartphone will be called the A1 and that it'll arrive in September. Not to be confused with the tangy steak sauce, the A1 has a certain ring to it that works on a number of levels (Acer 1, Android 1, etc). A September release falls in line with Acer's super-secret, mysterious plans for Android in 2009.

We don't know much about the A1 (the picture above is of a C1) but we can assume that it'll launch in a touchscreen form factor. How come no one is making any front facing keyboard + touchscreen designs?
