Acer rumored to be releasing 5-inch device on AT&T

Acer

Acer has announced a new 5-inch phone for AT&T — although most of the specs (internals) are expected to be midrange, it still features a full-HD display.

The device will also have an 8MP sensor for its main camera on the back.

We don’t have any pictures or pricing for the device, but it should be pretty inexpensive. Expect more information when AT&T makes the phone official, most likely in the coming weeks.

Keep in mind that this is a pretty rare appearance by Acer on North American shores, as the company has focused mainly on European and Asian markets in the past. This could be Acer testing the waters for perhaps something bigger to come, or it could be simply nothing at all. Stay tuned.

Box App To Be Preloaded On Motorola Xoom

A new partnership with Motorola has secured a spot for Box.net’s cloud storage app as being preloaded on future Xoom Android tablets worldwide. The announcement was accompanied by news of additional partnerships with VMware, Ping Security and Salesforce Chatter also, however its mobile strategy seems to make perfect sense as Box’s service offers companies and individuals a cloud structure that keeps everyone connected with great ease from anywhere.

Box’s on-going relationship with HP, which made Box the only preloaded app on the TouchPad (with 50GB of free lifetime storage) looks to be going strong as well. HP’s Vice-President of Strategy and Operations announced this week that their business PCs will start shipping the Box app preloaded beginning with SMBs in North America with a future intent to go global.

Even if you haven’t had the opportunity to try Box’s services out yet, with the way they are expanding their market, chances are you’ll meet soon enough.
