Cheap Acer Liquid M330 with Windows 10 launches in the US
Acer this week launched a new Windows 10 smartphone in the US: the Liquid M330. First announced in September (alongside the Liquid Z330, which is similar when it comes to hardware, but runs Android), the Acer Liquid M330 is succeeding the low-end Liquid M220, being a low-end device itself.

You can buy the Acer Liquid M330 from Microsoft Store, unlocked, for $99.99 - free shipping included. The handset sports a 4.5-inch screen with 480 x 854 pixels and 218 ppi, and is powered by an entry-level quad-core Snapdragon 210 processor clocked at 1.1 GHz. It's also got LTE connectivity, two 5 MP cameras (on the front and back), 1 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of expandable storage space. 

According to one of the images available at the Microsoft Store website, the Liquid M330 also features Windows Hello, but this is likely a mistake: Windows Hello is an advanced Microsoft-developed biometric security system, and we only saw it on high-end phones like the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL.

We haven't tested the Acer Liquid M330, so, at the moment, we're not sure if it's worth $99.99. Anyway, the handset has dual SIM support, and will work on GSM carriers, including AT&T and T-Mobile. Any takers?

This is a Dollar Store phone if there ever was one, and I'm a Windows Mobile die-hard fan.

The bezel is serious, but it could be fun to try. I just might try it. It could be fun to do a low end to the low end! Omg I should do it.

Looks like a finger print scanner on the back, but I'm guessing it's just part of the design for aesthetics only.

thats the worst placement for FPscanner.. I also guess its just decoration, why bother putting FPscanner on phone with SD210, 480p screen

The texture makes it look like it's a speaker.
