Acer Steps Up the Pace Windows 10 Smartphone Market with Jade Primo

Jade PrimoAcer is setting the pace in the Windows 10 smartphone market with the launch of the Jade Primo – the first non-Microsoft device to arrive in the hit the UK with Windows 10 Continuum.

The device comes with Acer’s specially designed docking unit, so it can be attached to a screen and keyboard and used just like an ordinary desktop.  When connected to an external display, the phone’s 5.5-inch display can be used as a touchpad or as a keyboard if there is no full-size option.  This means that users could leave their laptops at home as long as they know there will be a screen to connect to at their destination.  The Jade Primo can also be directly connected to a projector or large screen and switched into ‘Presenter View’ mode to run presentations or play videos.

The display uses curved 2.5D Gorilla Glass, is Full HD AMOLED and has a 176-degree wide-viewing angle and 10000:1 contrast ratio. Inside the Jade Primo is a hexa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 808 processor, along with 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal memory. It also has a 21MP auto-focus rear camera with LED flash that supports up to 4K (3840 x 2160) video recording. The 8MP front-facing camera has an 84-degrees wide-angle capability and supports full HD 1080p video recording.

The Acer Jade Primo is a demonstration of how seriously the Windows Mobile platform is being taken. Windows10 Mobile is expanding and traditional IT vendors are starting to bring their innovation and R&D prowess into play. The Jade Primo is perhaps first ‘hybrid’ smartphone that doubles-up as a PC. It takes the whole mobility concept one step further and is perhaps, an indication of the shape of things to come.
