The extremely similar devices both feature a 720p display and 13 megapixel rear cameras, beating the DROID RAZR and the identical international version soundly.

Between the stylus and a full Wacom digitizer it's become an object of desire for the budding smartphone artist.
Acer's Liquid line of Android smartphones hasn't exactly set the world on fire, the company is proceeding with its rollout with the latest model in the United Kingdom. The Acer Liquid Express (sounds like drain cleaner, doesn't it?) is launching now at T-Mobile and Orange locations across the country, distinguishing itself as one of the only low-end smartphones to offer near-field communication (NFC) technology for quick wireless retail payments.
Eee Pad Transformer Prime, instead giving us a nebulous "December" time frame. But if computer retailer extraordinaire Newegg is to be believed, the quad-core tablet will be landing on the 8th, just a week and a half from now.
