Acer Liquid Z3 unveiled, standard specs in a small package

Sometimes, in order to differentiate one's self in the market, one has to go the opposite direction from the rest of the players. When the majority is going for phones bigger than what one hand can comfortably hold, a smaller but still powerful option might just stand out from the crowd. And that might exactly be what Acer is aiming for when it unveiled today its fifth smartphone for 2013: the Acer Liquid Z3.

Acer unveils the Liquid E1 smartphone with 4.5″ display and Jelly Bean

Acer isn't necessarily known for unveiling high-end smartphones so this latest shouldn't arrive with much surprise. The newest Acer handset is the Liquid E1 which will bring goodies to include a 4.5-inch display and dual-core 1GHz processor. Taking a step back from the mid-range specs though, we do have to give Acer some credit for the exterior design, which does seem to be an improvement.

UK to Receive the Acer Liquid A1 in late November

Back on the first week of this month, we talked about a new Android phone named Acer Liquid A1, which was believed to have the same Snapdragon processor as the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10. But over at the::unwired, Arne Hess - who played with one - put together a “preview” review of the Acer Liquid confirming the processor, and concluding that it was underclocked. Now we have news that Acer have confirmed that the Liquid A1 - which is Acer's first Android smartphone - will arrive in late November. But in the UK at first, which is unfortunate for those who like to get their hands on this phone here in the American Continent. According to retailer Clove - who is taking orders for this Acer phone already - Android Donut (1.6) will run on the Liquid A1, instead of the Eclair (2.0). After reading that last sentence, the good news is that according to Clove's site; the Qualcomm Snapdragon based smartphone will not be underclocked. Last time we heard about this Acer phone, the bad news was that the processor would only run at 768Mhz. Apparently, unless there is a mistake on Clove's site, Acer had a change of hearth, which translates into happiness for the potential buyers of this Android smartphone, which by the way, will be priced at £286 pre-tax ($479). According to Clove, the following are the features of the A1, as well as the contents of the A1's box: Features of Acer Liquid A1 * Qualcomm 8250 1GHz processor * Andriod 1.6 (Donut) Operating System * Slim design just over 12.5mm thick * 3.5" WQVGA Touchscreen Display * Quad-band GSM / Dual-band HSDPA * Tri-band 900/1900/2100 MHz * 512MB ROM / 256MB RAM * 5 Megapixel Camera * Bluetooth 2 with EDR What's in the box of Acer Liquid A1? * Acer Liquid A1 * Battery * Mains Charger * Data Cable * Software CD * Quick Start Guide
