These Android devices just keep coming, don't they? After copping out with a dual-booting Android Netbook, it looks like Acer is ready to support Android in a big way. Acer just announced the Acer Liquid, Acer's first Android smartphone. The Acer Liquid (which we're assuming is the much discussed A1) will use Qualcomm's 1GHz Snapdragon Processor, marking it the first Android handset to use the chipset (which we expect to be super fast). Along with the super speedy processor, the Acer Liquid will have a drool-worthy High Definition WVGA capacitive touchscreen and run Android 1.6 'Donut'.
Other notable features include (via acer):
- Improved power management to help achieve longer battery autonomy for intense users;
- A new user interface with easy access to entertainment and web bookmarks
- An optimized camera with geo-tagging, ISO, self-timer options and accelerated auto-focus performance
- Exclusive Spinlets application providing free streaming of worldwide music and video, that can be shared with friends and family through web-posting or e-mail
- Smart integration of Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Picasa and Flickr in the address book, with realtime notification of status or content updates.
Though no date, price, carrier, or any real information was announced, we're sure that the Acer Liquid will shake up the current Android smartphone market into using faster processors (we hope). Either way, we can't wait to use one of these!
