This year's CES
was about bigger and faster smartphones and with all the noise surrounding them, many new phones seemed to go a bit under the radar. The Acer liquidmini
, also appearing under the Acer Liquid Mini E310 moniker, a smaller version of the Android-running Acer Liquid Metal
, was one of those phones
. Initially announced for Europe, the Acer liquidmini
recently passed FCC certification with frequencies matching AT&T
's 3G network, so it could well be heading to the nation's second largest carrier.
It really is “mini” in today's smartphone world with a screen size of 3.2 inches
at HVGA resolution. The phone runs on Froyo and has a 600 MHz processor, 512 MB RAM and a 5 megapixel camera. Judging from the user manual released by the Federal Commission, the phone seems to run Acer's Breeze custom UI, so be sure to check out our in-depth review
of the Liquid Metal, which has the same UI.
