Acer Liquid Metal Spotted

Despite the efforts in the shape of the Liquid E and the Stream, Acer is still yet to prove itself as a dominant force in the smartphone market despite its success in the laptop/PC area. The Stream is an awesome piece of kit, on paper at least, but as it stands is an under-appreciated device that hasn’t quite had the limelight it perhaps deserves.

However, that hasn’t worried Acer in the slightest nor has it stopped them producing another Android touting handset, seemingly. This is the Acer Liquid Metal, which is said to be positioned somewhere in between the E and the Stream in the Liquid series. So, that’s likely to put it directly in contention with the likes of the HTC Wildfire which means that it had better have a pretty impressive spec list as well as a reasonable price tag if it wants even a glimmer of hope of establishing itself.

Looking at the specs we know so far, the Liquid Metal doesn’t look likely to disappoint, we’re talking an aluminium/metallic body, camera with flash, an 800 MHz Qualcomm processor, 512Mb RAM and 512 MB of ROM as well as a 3.7 inch TFT capacitive touchscreen display (WVGA resolution and support for 16m colours). There’s also said to be Bluetooth 3.0 and Dolby Mobile Technology. But, the real feather in the Liquid Metals cap? It’s said to be shipping with Android 2.2 Froyo albeit with Acer’s proprietary skin, Shell 4.0, on top. If it turns out that this handset also touts Wi-Fi, HSDPA and a resonable price tag, Acer could really be on to a winner. (Source: GSMArena)
