Windows 10-ready Acer Liquid M220 will be launched in the US via Microsoft Store
Acer's first (and only) Windows Phone 8.1 handset, the Liquid M220, will soon be available in the US via Microsoft Store, both online, and in brick and mortar stores. According to Acer and Microsoft, the handset has a suggested retail price of just $79.99, and customers will be able to buy it starting June.

Needless to say, $80 won't get you any high-end specs. The Liquid M220 is a pretty small handset, sporting a 4-inch IPS display with 480 x 800 pixels. It's powered by a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, further offering: a 5 MP rear camera with LED flash, a 2 MP front-facing camera, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of expandable storage space, and a 1300 mAh battery. Since it runs Windows Phone 8.1, the handset also comes with Microsoft-specific features like Skype, Cortana, Office, and OneDrive.

Microsoft says that the Acer Liquid M220 will be updated to Windows 10 once this is officially released, noting that, "due to platform technical specifications", the smartphone might not get all the features included in the new OS. All in all, the M220 may not be such a bad choice, considering its price. What do you think?

This will fail, especially when you can get a Lumia 640, which is better in almost every way for $10 more.

Yeah ... . Many OEMs had lowing their standard, just so they can get an income. And chinesse OEMs is the cause what's going on these days. Hopely that people will buy a handset because not just from its price, but because of it's qualities ( looks, features, softwares, hardwares & the most important is daily useage track record )
