Acer Liquid spills on the FCC

Acer Liquid spills on the FCC
The first Acer handset powered by Android, the Liquid  A1 (S100) was spotted at the FCC. Equipped with AT&T/Rogers/Bell/Telus frequencies at 850/1900MHz, the handset could end up in the U.S. as the Acer smartphone invasion tries to plant some roots. We previously reported on the PC maker's desire to launch a more balanced line next year by adding some more Android devices. Acer is striving to crack the list of the top 5 smartphone producers within the next 5 years.

As for the Liquid A1, it is expected to feature a Snapdragon processor underclocked to 768MHz, a 3.5 inch WVGA touchscreen display, Wi-Fi, GPS, and a 5MP camera with AF. The device also focuses on the social networking sites like Twitter, Facebook and Flickr, and carries a 3.5mm audio jack for your listening pleasure. According to BGR, Acer execs have been telling AT&T and T-Mobile folks that it would be a good idea for the carriers to strike a relationship with the Taiwanese based company. If Acer does succeed in getting AT&T's attention, it might have to compete with another PC maker offering a smartphone as Dell is expected to launch the Mini3iX through the carrier in the first quarter of next year.
