Acer announces its first Android smartphone - the Acer Liquid
Acer has announced its first smartphone outside of the Windows Mobile realm. Not only is the intriguingly called Acer Liquid the company’s first product running on Google’s Android 1.6 platform, but it is also the first official Android handset to be taking advantage of Qualcomm’s industry-leading 1GHz Snapdragon chipset. There will be more hardware goodies, including a WVGA capacitive touchscreen and a 5MP camera with autofocus and geo-tagging.
Software-wise, Acer promises a new enhanced interface that should provide quick access to “entertainment and web bookmarks”… whatever that means. A little something should be there for social network users too, as the phonebook is said to be integrated with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Picasa and Flickr, which will automatically provide updated information. A brand new app, called Spinlets, will allow for free streaming of music and video that will also be available for sharing with your friends.
All of this sounds sweet, so we are already pretty enthusiastic about that Snapdragon-powered Android offering. Unfortunately, the manufacturer has not provided images of the device (nor has it provided info on release dates), but claims that it will sport ellipse curves, slim body and will be offered in red, white and black colors.

*Update*: Electricpig has managed to take a few snapshots of the device, so here it is - Acer's slim and sleek Android phone.
