Acer n300 Pocket PC with WM 5.0 and Wide-VGA (update)

The first details of the Acer n300 Pocket PC series have shown up on a Chinese board:
  • Windows Mobile 5.0
  • Samsung S3C2440 400MHz
  • 64MB of RAM, 128MB of ROM
  • 3.7-inch, VGA LCD touch screen
  • SD/MMC expansion slot with SDIO feature
  • Bluetooth 1.2
  • 802.11b wireless LAN
  • USB Host 1.1
  • Rechargeable and removable 1200 mAh Li-ion battery

The 3.7 inch screen looks wider than that of other VGA-capable Pocket PCs which is probably why Gizmodo dubbed it the Acer Widescreen.

Update: InfoSync picked up the news.

Gosh, this looks sexy. If I need to replace my Zodiac2, I might have to look at this device. The new Dell Axim was the front runner, but I like how this Acer is smaller (shorter) and not much wider, but has the gigantic screen.

How much extra is USB 2.0? Shouldn't it be the standard by now? I can't imagine it costing much more than USB 1.1, but maybe Acer got a greater volume discount on these USB 1.1 modules from the manufacturers' supreme overstock. And somehow that extra savings trickles down to me, but I'd still like the 2.0 speed for data transfers.

I think that Missing Sync for Windows Mobile is probably mature, so hopefully I wouldn't suffer too much if I switched over to WM. Unfortunately for my "gadget addiction", the Z2 is pretty well-built and the odds of it dying suddenly seem small. But, if ever the digitizer ever goes south like my old T|3, old MR. Z2 turns into the gaming device and I jump all over this new Acer.
