Acer Expands Its Liquid Smartphone Sales to the Caribbean
SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 2, 2014 – Acer America announced today that its new Android-powered Liquid E700 smartphones are available at Digicel stores in Bermuda, Jamaica and the Turks and Caicos Islands. Boasting dynamic audio, light weight, a large screen and ultra-long battery life, the Acer Liquid E700 is primed to support today's mobile lifestyle, whether it's enjoying music at the beach, listening to music during a jog or watching videos on a plane. It's comfortably lightweight at just 5.46 ounces and sports a premium look and feel with crafted top and bottom curves optimized to protect the screen and provide a better grip.
Featuring a brilliant 5-inch HD IPS display with Zero Air Gap technology and 900:1 high contrast, the Liquid E700 prevents glare and provides vivid images with wide viewing angles for clear reading, even in sunlight. "We're thrilled to be working with Digicel Group, which has enabled us to expand our smartphone presence to the Caribbean," said Hugo Hernandez, vice president, Acer America Smartphone Business Group. "We believe professionals, consumers and frequent travelers in this region will appreciate Acer's Liquid E700's ergonomic design, premium sound quality and extremely long battery life."
Rachael Lindo-Hall, Digicel Head of Group Device Management, commented; "We're committed to ensuring our customers have access to the latest and greatest handsets which in turn open up a world of possibilities for them on our 4G network. The Acer Liquid E700 smartphone is a perfect choice for our style-savvy, on-the-go customers as it meets both their business and personal needs. We are happy to be welcoming Acer to the Digicel family."
Ideal for Travel: Long Battery Life, 3G Quad Band & Triple SIM Capable
Boasting a powerful quad core processor, the Liquid E700 is fast and responsive. Plus, it's got ample room for archiving photos, videos and other data locally with 4GB ROM that can be expanded with a Micro SD card.
Triple SIM capable, the Acer Liquid E700 eliminates the need to have multiple phones for work, international travel and pleasure, while 3G quad-band supports up to four radio frequencies and fast downloads at 21Mbps. In addition, the powerful 3500mAh battery provides up to 12 hours of video, 100 hours of music, 24 hours of talk time and 60 days in stand-by mode, long enough for a full day of mobile entertainment or a transcontinental flight.
An 8MP auto focus camera with a F2.0 aperture captures high quality images even in low light situations, while a 2MP front camera enables high-quality videoconferences. The smartphone's 2-way live screen™ offers temporary group sharing in real time, so users can share their ideas with up to six friends. The initiator/group administrator simply taps on a photo or note and it will pop up on a friend's mobile device who can return photos or notes using the same app. The live screen also enables the copying and pasting of pictures and scribbles with an active stylus or finger, while images and slides can be edited and exported to .JPG, .PDF or .PPT.
Fluid, flexible and intuitive, the user interface is easy to use and supports multi-tasking. Users can switch or remove tasks in one page view or leverage a multiple view layout to access tasks more efficiently. Integrated AcerFloat apps extend one-handed control to quickly and easily launch frequently-used applications. Excellent connectivity is provided via WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 EDR and a micro USB slot.

The Acer Liquid E700 smartphone is available at Digicel stores with affordable pricing in Bermuda, Jamaica and Turks and Caicos.
