Four new Android handsets make an appearance at Google I/O

Four new Android handsets make an appearance at Google I/O
While we are still waiting for Google to reveal the hot Android-related stuff we are interested in at this year's Google I/O developer event, it's never a bad idea to pay some attention to the devices that happen to be showcased there. It turns out that attendees have been treated to a total of four not yet announced Android-powered smartphones, residing behind the glass.

Although these have not been officially announced yet, some of them have already been featured in our news section. For example, we have already heard of the Samsung Acclaim R880 for U.S. Cellular, and we've even seen a render, which pretended to reveal the handset's design. Actually, it turns out the Acclaim will look in a totally different way, but at least it will keep the Android 2.1 OS, 3.2-inch HVGA screen and slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

Next come the Samsung Galaxy 3 (I5801) and Galaxy 5 (I5500). We have already heard of both of them, but it now becomes clear that the I5500 will not be a Corby, but a Galaxy. Of course, this is all subject to change until we finally see these handsets become official.

Last, but not least, the Acer Liquid stream has been spotted, being equipped with a large 3.7-inch touchscreen, Snapdragon chipset and a rather unattractive body, might we add.

We'll make sure to keep you posted on the latest news surrounding these Android-powered phones. But first, let us prepare ourselves for the Google I/O keynote due to begin in a few hours.

Always nice to see new phones, I wish they would release a CDMA/GSM Android. I like to have the option when traveling to know my cell will work outside the US.

Acer Liquid Stream may reverse the way I think toward Acer's liquid line-up.... First time I used Acer Liquid turns out to be a super disaster that I hardly believe anyone would wanna use such phone, haha
