MWC 2010: Acer Liquid e smartphone announced

Mobile phones, MWC 2010, Tech Digest news

acer liquid e.jpgAcer have been planning on releasing a whole load of new Android phones in 2010 and, true to their word, the Liquid e smartphone has just popped up at MWC 2010.

Basically an update to the Acer Liquid, improvements include the use of Android 2.1 over Android 1.6. There’s also a 3.5 inch WVGA display, 5 MP autofocus camera, GPS, Wi-fi, Bluetooth, an accelerometer, 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and a 3.5 mm headphone jack.

But why-oh-why run the very capable Snapdragon processor at a mere 768MHz? The Liquid was a very nice phone, but the main bugbear was its underclocked processor. Surely this updated handset should have set using the Snapdragon to its full potential as its number one priority?

No news on pricing or release dates yet, but we’ll keep you posted.
