Acer Liquid Metal Smartphone Now Official

Posted October 30, 2010 in , ,

Acer has finally pulled the trigger and officially announced their Liquid Metal smartphone.  It’s an Android device and from where we stand the battery cover, which is crafted from stainless steal, brings creedence to the device’s name.

Under the hood is a Qualcomm 7230 800MHz, WiFi N, HSDPA connectivity and an Internet browser that has Flash support.  In terms of interface Acer has skinned the Android OS with their own proprietary UI called “Breeze” for managing apps and an app called “SocialJogger” for administering social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter from one place.

The device is equipped with a 3.6-inch touchscreen that Acer says is rounded “to grant a truly sensational visualization”.  There are also a set of LED lights on the face of the handset to indicate low battery power, incoming messages and missed calls.

In terms of optics the Liquid Metal has been outfitted with a 5 megapixel camera with image stabilization, smile/face recognition and an LED flash.  It can capture 720p video with Dolby Surround technology.

If you’re with a bunch of buds you can fire up the Hotspot feature and share your Internet connection, provided of course your carrier supports this sort of behavior.

We don’t know when it will arrive State side, but you can expect it in the EU in a brown finish this November for £299.   The silver version will arrive this December.
