With all the phones being given the unveiling treatment ahead of Mobile World Congress, it’s amazing that people actually bother to go to the show! Today’s early sneak peek comes from Acer, a computer company which has recently dabbled in Android tablets, who is now unveiling their second entry into the crowded Android smartphone market.
While the Acer Liquid Glow doesn’t tote the most powerful hardware on the planet, Acer is hoping it will take off with the entry-level crowd. The Liquid Glow will feature a 3.7″ WVGA display, Android 4.0, 1GHz (single-core) Qualcomm 7227A processor, 5 megapixel rear camera with flash, 1GB of storage and 512 MB RAM (rumored from PocketLint), and NFC capability.
Though not a powerhouse by any stretch of the word, Acer’s Liquid Glow is certainly a slick looking phone, with its rounded edges, chrome accents, and color combos (though, we’ll probably avoid the pink variant). If the device makes its way stateside, it’ll probably land on budget carriers with a super-low or perhaps free price tag.
We’ll be stopping by the Acer booth next week to check out some of the Tegra 3 goodness they’re expected to unveil as well as the unannounced Acer CloudMobile phone, which may be the Acer phone to impress the hardcore Android users. While we’re there, I’ll make sure Taylor spends at least a few minutes with the Liquid Glow.
Anyone out there excited about the Liquid Glow? Could be a cool Android phone for the teenager set.
