Acer Liquid Metal Review

The Acer Liquid Metal has a very decent price for an Android 2.2 handset with second generation Snapdragon chipset – the same one that is in the T-Mobile G2 and its HTC Desire Z version – as well as 512MB RAM/ROM, and some perks like Dolby Mobile, LED notification icons and dual mikes for noise-cancellation. Well, the Acer Liquid Metal seems to be a great value for the money on paper, but has Acer finally nailed it?...

Have been waiting for this review since se hands-on came out, and have to say im very pleased with it. I was only wondering if any video review is going to be added latter on.

anyone know where I can get one or if its even released yet? I know it works with AT&T 3g but is this sold internationally? or will it be available for purchase here?

It is $399 at Expansys, but still with the EU frequencies, meaning that you can't use 3G speeds on AT&T...

Those two cons are really annoying. It would've been nice to see an evolution in the camera...the screen I might've been able to see past but I require a more than decent camera in a phone these days. If I wanted sub par I'd go Blackberry. is now $409.99 at Expansys-USA.

How does this phone compare to the Motorola Defy? Anyone willing to share?

The camera on the reviewed phone is broken. I had the same on a SE K550i once. Blurry photos and the cam-module didn't seem to autofocus at all. I noticed the same kind of blur on these pictures. So please ask a replacement with a working camera and please redo the photos.
