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?
