Since we can’t actively cover every news article that breaks (as much as we would love to), PhoneDog compiles various news announcements and press releases that have been published throughout the week and places them in one easy to read article known as "Tidbit Tuesday." Enjoy!
AT&T sold out of HTC Tilt II?

Though the device is available online, most stores have sold out, with a rumored replenishment date of October 24th. Via PhoneArena
Acer seeks to ship 500,000 smartphones by the end of the year, 2 million in 2010

By the end of the year, the company hopes to ship between 400,000-500,000 devices, followed by 1.5 to 2 million in 2010. With Android taking off, the numbers are certainly legitimate if they continue with planned devices like the A1. Via IntoMobile, Digitimes
