New Acer Smartphone: Possibly Android

The day wouldn't be complete without another Android smartphone speculation accompanied by a fuzzy picture, not to mention a peculiar keyboard design. The above photo from Boy Genius Report is alleged to be a new Acer smartphone built for Windows Mobile or possibly Android. A new Android phone would be more than welcome. It's reported that this Acer smartphone will be displayed at the MWC on the 16th.

It's not certain whether this portrait QWERTY keyboard design will swivel to landscape mode, so what you see here may be what you get. Having another potential Android smartphone in the market is a positive thing, but it will be interesting to see how this particular keyboard design is received by the consumer. Would you buy an Acer Android phone with this kind of keyboard design?
