Acer Liquid gets its first hands-on

by 492 comments

I’ve just spotted some of the first Acer Liquid live shots ever made. It’s a pre-release device we’re talking here, but it has obviously been enough to give the reviewers some positive impressions.

Acer Liquid is the first Android smartphone riding a Snapdragon CPU though downclocked to 768 Mhz in this particular case.

The thing that I enjoy the most is that their once  pitch-black film-noir website color scheme is redesigned as well with a more lively feel in mind. I would have liked it even better if they went for something more colorful instead of simply switching from black to white overnight, but I’ll take it as it is.


HTC will use the new “Quietly Brilliant” brand message as a part of their world-wide advertising campaign that puts “YOU” (the user) in the center of the advertising message.
