The Liquid A1
, Acer´s first Android handset rolled out running version 1.6 of the famous operating system, along with a few minor personalizations. According to a French blog, owners of the handset may get a free update to Android 2.0 as soon as March this year. As we have already seen with the Motorola DROID
, the new edition brings along several really enjoyable extra features like synchronization to multiple accounts, plus version 2.0 (at least in theory) allows for fully-fledged multitouch within certain applications that come integrated into the OS. However, it´s still unclear whether or not the function will be available on the updated Acer Liquid A1.
As a whole, the possible software update is great news for owners of the powerful smartphone, but we just have to point out it´s quite likely that version 2.1 is released before March 2010 (supposedly, the OS edition the HTC Nexus One
runs on), meaning people with the Liquid A1 in their pockets might end up getting an already obsolete piece of software.Acer Liquid A1 Specifications
