Acer has unveiled Liquid Mini and beTouch E210 smartphones, both featuring Android Froyo. These smartphones will be launched by April in the UK. Prices have not been announced yet, but going by their features, Acer's Liquid Mini and beTouch E210 should be inexpensive.
The first one, Liquid Mini, has a 3.2 inch, 480 x 320 pixel multi touch LCD screen; 600 MHz Qualcomm 7227 processor; 512 MB of RAM and that much ROM, and a 5 mega pixel camera that records 480p quality video on the back. There's no mention of there being a front facing camera for video chats.
Acer Liquid Mini will be available in five colours - silver, royal blue, black, lime green and light pink.
Android Froyo operating system will have Acer UI on top, allowing access to wireless connectivity, music player and sound profiles. Android market will also be accessible.
Froyo on Acer Liquid Mini will make it possible to view and edit popular office files such as Word, Excel, Power point and PDF, and will support Microsoft Exchange.
Acer's Liquid Mini is DLNA certified, which means you can transfer content between your computer and your smartphone, or perhaps even install apps that let you control your TV in some way. You can browse and playback multi media content stored on your Liquid Mini on your TV or PC and stream music and video to a DLNA compatible television through the integrated Acer clear.fi media sharing system.
The beTouch E210 comes with a portrait keyboard plus trackpad. On the hardware front it is not as exciting as the Mini. You get a 2.6 inch 320 x 240 screen, 416 MHz ST Ericsson PNX6715 processor, 512 MB ROM, 256 MB RAM, and a 3.2 mega pixel camera. But like the Acer Liquid Mini, the Froyo-laden beTouch E210 also has WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, and FM radio.
