Probably not much, acer is a huge $ for MS. Plus every sale of droid brings in profits. If anything MS probably approves so that when Acer if ever releases a win8 phone people wont be shocked by the 'design switch'

I have no idea what this article was about... nor will I probably ever. The picture just has this gravitational pull.

PA Typo: 'In our CES hands-on with the "Asus" Liquid Z5 we showed you that, just like the older Liquid Z3, the handset' its Acer not Asus

Another typo is screen resolution - qHD = 540x960 not 640x960. Apple is the only OEM that uses 640p on their phones.

Used / using sort of. It's now this akward 640x1136. Apple is always bad in industry standards. (with chargers and display resolution)

I wouldn't say chargers since OEMs are trying to make Micro USB formatted to be used as the Lightning Cable (being reversible).

I'll take Moto G over this. Much cheaper, more RAM, better cpu, kitkat with better support.
