yeah :) they have. It's due to the fact ages ago Acer bought them out, but didn't actually do anything for a while. Left the X800s to sell, then now they have the X900 and DX900. Which actually look like good phones, Dual Sim card(1 3G HSPDA, 1 GSM) with a nice speedy samsung processor :) and only $823 from an NZ Reseller(guarantee + CGA) or about $6-700 from ebay...but I've had a recent bad experience from ebay with a phone :(

If you had the money, get the DX900 mmmmm. Triband HSPDA too so XT, Vodafone and use the second sim card holder for a 2degrees. It does drain the battery using two sims at once, but it's pretty damn awesome

Seems to be getting quite nice reviews too :)
Most ranging in the 8-9.5/10\
