Acer releases budget Windows Phone for the masses Acer has used MWC to announce their first Windows Phone, the budget Liquid M220.
Available in Europe for just 79 euros, the device should be able to rival Microsoft's budget Lumia devices, if at least on price.

The phone has a 4-inch display, 512MB RAM, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4GB internal storage (microSD expandable), 3G radios and dual 2MP/5MP cameras.

Outside of low price and low-end specs, Acer has looked to differentiate themselves with an interesting design. The back has a hashed look which also makes it the device easier to hold, and the sides have a metallic dotted look that breaks up the monotony.

At launch, the device will run Windows 8.1, but will be upgradeable to Windows 10 later this year when the operating system launches.
