Acer Liquid Metal to bring brushed aluminum looks to Android lovers
The handset is certainly a looker with its mostly aluminum casing, and should feature a 3.6" LCD display with 480x800 pixels of resolution. The system memory is decent at 512MB RAM/ROM, but Acer also throws in Bluetooth 3.0, and Dolby Mobile speakers. A camera of undisclosed resolution can be seen on the back, along with an LED flash. It is supposed to be powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM7230 that is present on the T-Mobile G2, which means graphics capabilities will be up there with today's best. The CPU is again clocked at 800MHz, instead of 1GHz, like on the G2, to enhance the battery endurance. Not a dealbreaker, as the performance of the updated Scorpion core is on par with the current 1GHz Snapdragon.
The Russian source says that only the back and edges will be metal, while the front will stay plastic, most probably to allow better reception. The Acer Liquid Metal will be offered in two color combos, but where, and at what price, remains to be announced.

Uhm it's not like the metal/ plastic is an issue, it won't feel lobsided cuz they're obviously parallel, and it'll be much better than the captivate, skinnier, smaller, faster, better looking, better camera, and android 2.2, can't even compare
