Acer Liquid unboxing video

Acer and formerly Eten are no stranger to Windows Mobile smartphone devices but before the launch of the Acer Liquid (Acer A1) they’d never strayed from the Microsoft platform. The Acer Liquid launched earlier this week and is Acer’s first foray in to the world of Android OS and there’s another first for this handset, it’s the first Android powered handset to have a WVGA, 480×800 pixel display. Previously the largest display was 320×480.

If you take a look at the specification of the Acer Liquid (aka Acer A1) you’ll see some excellent plus-points. Starting with the Snapdragon processor, not the 1Ghz version but still a pretty rapid 768MHz then there’s 512MB ROM and 256MB RAM to keep things running along at a fair old clip. There’s also a 5MP auto-focus camera, and although there’s no flash, it’s about the best camera to be found on an Android handset, the 5MP camera with flash in the Motorola Milestone being just that bit better.

So we’ll be spending the next week or so trying out the Acer Liquid, one of us on the team will be using it as our main handset and giving it a thorough test. The review will be here for you soon. As always we have a quick unboxing video for you which is more of a tour of the hardware. I’ll also have a more detailed video of the OS and UI for you soon. Please do feel free to submit your comments or questions about the Acer Liquid over on the forum and we’ll do our back to address them for you!
