Acer has announced a slew of new products today, including an Android smartphone and an e-reader. The e-reader will work with Barnes & Noble’s e-book library and offer Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity options.

The Android phone, known as the Acer Stream, will run Android 2.1 (though we’re sure it will be upgradable upon release), has a 1Ghz Snapdragon processor and 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED touchscreen. Basically, it has very similar specifications to the Nexus One and the Droid Incredible.

Prices and release dates for both devices haven’t been announced, but the Acer Stream was recently cleared by the FCC, which indicates that it will be available in the U.S.

One user already has a hands-on demo of the Acer Stream available (see below).

As for the e-reader, it has a 6-inch eInk display, an ISBN scanner so you can scan your paper books to then buy digitally, and an integrated keyboard.

The e-reader isn’t all that appealing but the Acer Stream could be a great addition to the Android phone space. What do you think of these new devices?
