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.
