Acer DX650 double-sided GPS smartphone leaks
I have to say I like the concept. The first of Acer’s upcoming smartphones, tipped for launch at their MWC announcement next week, has leaked, and it’s certainly an interesting looking device. The Acer DX650 is a dual-sided Windows Mobile smartphone, with a traditional 2.8-inch QVGA touchscreen on one side, and a full numeric keypad and 1.27-inch 128 x 96 monochrome OLED display on the reverse.
Also see the x960:
The X960 offers a 2.8-inch 640 x 480 pixel display with HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, microSD, and a 3.2-megapixel camera with flash.
I am sorry but the phone is not attractive, no way no how I know ACER can do much better I hope this is just a prototype.
Interesting design resulting from trying to maximize screen size
I'm not trying to be rude here but they look like my high school old Texas Instruments calculators from 1999
What's the matter? CIA's got you pushing too many pencils?
I don't like the fact that there's no safe side to put down. with a screen on both sides I would obsess about it getting scratched or dirty.....and I'm not crazy about the looks of it either. Hmmm

..........SHAKE N BAKE..........
~via smartphone~oled screen? Really?
I agree with every post but, acer deserves credit for trying something different. Now some other company will copy and perfect the design, or maybe acer will. Either way a fresh look on cell design is a plus for us. Something "new" is on the horizon. ~via smartphone~
I've never heard of a double sided phone before!!! I think the idea is a good one, even though it doesn't look it's best right now. But, i'm sure that this MUST be a prototype. Give 'em a chance, and i'm sure they'll bring out a nicer looking model as they continue to work on their devices, and in time they may even bring out a better looking model at some time in the, hopefully, near future.
I mean, take a look at the earlier Blackberry models, compared to the ones we have today, they are ugly. Now they are more user friendly, easier to hold in the palm of your hand, etc.
Define irony: A bunch of idiots dancing on a plane to a song that was sung by a band that got killed on a plane. - By a man who is in a movie about those very idiots dancing on the plane he was on.
