Here's the thing: the Acer Liquid e seems to be nearly the same phone as the original Acer Liquid. The only difference we could spot is that the Acer Liquid e will run Android 2.1 (yay!) instead of Android 1.6. The Acer Liquid e runs the same underclocked 768MHz Snapdragon processor, uses the same 3.5-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen, and has the same 512MB ROM / 256MB RAM.
We understand if Acer wants to build a Liquid brand name but could we at least have had something new thrown to us? For example, the Cliq XT is a completely different phone from the Cliq and the myTouch 3G 1.2 improved upon the original myTouch with some new features. The Liquid e looks like the Liquid with Android 2.1 to us. Any point in differentiating the devices once (if) the original Liquid gets 2.1?
Full press release and specs after the jump
Acer is proud to present Liquid e, the new version of the already well known Liquid smartphone.
