    Acer have officially released their press statement for the Liquid Metal mobile phone today. This device appears to be another step in the right direction for Acer, playing on their strengths and ability to bring top-end features into a usable device. The mobile phone market is a new area for the company but things are slowly picking up pace for the Taiwan-based international computer company. The full press release is included after the jump, but some of the highlights of the phone are discussed next.

    The device offers a 3.6-inch display, LED notifications for missed calls and a top-notch build quality including a stainless steel of the battery cover. Much nicer than the ‘plasticy’ feel of my Samsung Galaxy S. Turning to the internals, the Liquid Metal offers a Qualcomm 7230 800 MHz processor chip and competitive connectivity options including WiFi n and HSDPA at 14.4Mbps. For the camera enthusiasts, the device provides a 5MP A/F camera with an enhanced LED flash capable of recording video in HD at 720p (30fps). Although many of the top-end phones have offered this for over a year now, it is great to see Acer keeping up with the pace. Similar to the Acer Stream, this device also offers Dolby Surround technology. Acer have also included their own UI called Breeze, again, possibly similar to what we’ve recently seen with the Stream. Wrapping up the interesting features is DLNA/UPnP technology, which allows you to share your content from the phone as a server, to any other DLNA enabled device.

    The Liquid Metal will be offered in two colours: silver and brown for a SRRP of £299 inc Vat. The brown will be available first from mid November with the silver arriving in early December.

The materials selected, like the stainless steel of the battery cover, are solid and resistant and the chrome trims give a sense of high quality for extreme tactile and visual pleasure. As in the entire Acer Liquid series, we find the LED signals on the upper part of the telephone notify the user of missed calls, the need to charge the battery, and new incoming messages clearly.

    Liquid Metal steps on the gas, ensuring higher speed in all activities, especially in navigating the web, thanks to the combination of:

    - the Qualcomm 7230 800 MHz process for lightning fast navigation

    - Acer SocialJogger Application aggregates your Facebook and Twitter feeds, allowing you to surf through the updates with the trackwheel, receive updates directly through the dedicated widget on the homescreen, and comment or share directly from the user-friendly interface.
