Additional specifications consist of stereo speakers, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, microUSB 2.0, and a 3250 mAh Li-Polymer battery. Another pleasant feature is the (possible) inclusion of a mini HDMI port.

According to TechRadar UK there’s also a 3G option which will cost £209.99 (around $287/AU$280). We will update this article with the official specs as soon as Acer makes them available.
