ACER’s Liquid Metal Details released

November 1, 2010 - Written By Scott Beard

Acer has officially launched the Liquid Metal. The Android device will put speed ahead of all, and has support for 14.4 Mbps, HSPA-based 3G on networks that support it. It also upgrades to the same 800MHz MSM7230 Snapdragon found in the T-Mobile G2 and Desire Z.

The Liquid Metal will have an improved build quality, doing away with a plastic body that its close relative the Liquid E had,  and incorporating a steel back cover and chrome trim.  The phone will also have:

  • Android 2.2 Froyo
  • 802.11n WiFi
  • custom UI, Breeze has weather/details on lock screen along with recently used apps
  • a rounded 3.6 inch 800×480 screen
  • a 5 megapixel camera, capable of 720p video
  • a Dolby Surround boost to audio
  • DLNA media sharing.

The phone will be heading soon to the UK in brown and silver colors starting in mid-November for a reported price of  £299 ($476), that after taxes and contract fees.
