Slim, stylish and in tune with the latest trends, the Acer Allegro is inspired by how people communicate and live in the most modern settings. With its unique user interface powered by Windows® Phone, complete with Live Tiles, the Allegro puts people front and center, making it easier to connect and share with friends, family and colleagues so important moments are never missed. With the most recent version of Windows Phone, code-named Mango, Live Tiles are more interactive, enabling users to get real-time information without having to open them, by pinning them to the Start screen.


“The Acer Allegro, which runs on Microsoft Windows Phone 7.5 OS (Mango), is a unique proposition for today’s on-the-go and connected customer. The easy to use Windows interface gives the user a mobile device that facilitates instant connectivity and navigation on the web. Furthermore, with windows, the user can create and access data seamlessly. The Acer Allegro was designed to put accessibility & creativity in the hand of the consumer,” commented Gustavo Fuchs, Director, Mobility, Middle East and Africa - Microsoft


Available now in the UAE at selected Sharaf DG Stores (Dubai Mall and Deira City Center and Marina Mall in Abu Dhabi) the Allegro comes in Midnight Blue and Pearl White. The Allegro is chic-looking and features ergonomically designed curves that fit just right in the palm of your hand. The comfort enhances your hold on net surfing, making calls, gaming and everything else. The generously-sized 3.6" WVGA display is nice and bright, so its crystal clear on the go.


“The Windows based Allegro smartphone is loaded with features that are designed to empower the end users,” said Sanjay Kachroo Business Head - Smart Hand Held Business Group, Acer Computer. 


“Providing maximum portability for mobile users, the Allegro is ideal for consumers who demands superior quality products that are also reliable, rigid, and stylish.”  


Handling documents while mobile is easy with the Allegro because integrated Office® Mobile enables smart viewing, editing, sharing and syncing. The Allegro also excels at organization with a calendar that syncs information from the phone, email and Facebook, and notes important business and social events across all your business & personal calendars.


The Allegro delivers a fast, beautiful web experience with Internet Explorer© 9, and quickly searches the web, allowing you to view HTML 5 enabled websites. 


Instant access to Marketplace is handy for trying, buying and searching for apps and games on the go. Marketplace features the hottest Xbox Live® titles and add-ons for games, providing an avenue for socializing with your gaming friends, anytime, anywhere, all from your Allegro device. An Xbox Live avatar and profile are integrated into Windows Phones Games Hub to help keep track of scores and achievements as well as personalize the device to mirror your personality. 


Daily smartphone use involves a myriad of apps running simultaneously, plus gaming and multimedia enjoyment. So, the Allegro packs a powerful 1 GHz processor and speedy 14.4 Mbps HSDPA downloading for ultra-smooth use. A 5 MP camera captures it all in high-definition stills and 720p video, and a whopping 8 GB of storage keeps lots on hand for sharing with friends.
