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!

What do you guys think?

Please come to AT&T, either you or the Xperia x3. I am so sick of my iPhone and I don't have tmobile or sprint service =[[[[[.

Android will be and is in many ways better than the iPhone, in my opinion, with Apple you get to play the waiting game. Example took 3 years for MMS, etc... And yes At&t will drop an Android device pretty soon, sooner than expected. They would lose $ if they did not. If not you can always Unlock some of the t-Mobile Androids to work with At&t.

@Jesse83:

Let's get something straight, it wasn't Apple's fault that MMS was lacking on the iphone. It was ATT's fault and the lack of their network's ability. A little research via Google would have allowed you to sound a bit more intelligent in your criticism.

You can't be serious? Apple didn't allow MMS until 3.0 was released. AT&T dragged their feet after that, sure. But we were all playing the waiting game with Apple.

I too left my iPhone for the MyTouch, and lesson learned... BE PATIENT!!!!! not only did the price drop, but all these other phones are coming out that are more advanced than the MyTouch. I am too hoping to get my hands on the Hero, but not until the price drops and I am also curious as to how the Motorola Cliq and Samsung Moment hold up against it, but again I am sure that even if they do come out at $199.99 they will drop to $99-$149 for the Holidays,so yes patience is the key!

Any chance we can buy it outright? Cuz us Canadians know Rogers won't. But then again, with 3 carriers and iPhones everywhere, the boys at Rogers might want to jump on this ASAP.
