Huge new Acer blurs the line between smartphones and tablets

It appears that size is really starting to matter when it comes to smartphones. Following hot on the heels of the huge Dell Streak, this new 4.8-inch Android powered monster from Acer, makes the iPhone's highly touted 3.5-inch retina display look kind of puny.

Resolution is a different matter however, and at 1024 x 480, the Acer's screen actually has fewer pixels than the iPhone's. Still, the yet to be named Acer seems well suited for multimedia applications, with LED backlighting, Dolby Mobile, a six-axis motion sensor for gaming, HDMI video output, and a 1-GHz Snapdragon processor powering it all.

Look for the giant Acer to show up in stores around April of next year. The price was not announced.
