When Aymar de Lencquesaing, head of Acer’s mobile phone division, said last month that Acer will be offering a “much more balanced” portfolio in 2010, most people understood that statement to... mean that Acer would be releasing a few additional Android handsets, perhaps as many as 4 to 5 in 2010. We are happy to report that this original estimate was a gross miscalculation. Acer confirmed o...

Technolo Shree on YouTube has posted a nice video unboxing of the new Acer A1 Liquid, which recently became available in the UK.

The unboxing is of the white version, which we’re told is... the only version available in the UK at this time.

Back in March we attended a very special event by Acer which introduced their intentions of entering the mobile phone market. Even at this event they were not adverse to Android and since then we’ve... seen why. The Acer Lquid A1 has recently gone on sale through online retailers Expansys and Clove, selling at £339.99 ($556) and £328.99 ($538) respectively. The A1 is the first Android smartphone to...

Acer jumped head first into the smartphone market in 2009, releasing close to 10 handsets with only one, the A1 Liquid, running the Android OS. The A1’s status as Acer’s only Android handset... in the midst of a a plethora of Windows Mobile handsets may soon change. According to Aymar de Lencquesaing, head of Acer’s mobile phone division, Acer will be offering a “much more balanced&#...

Not too long ago we brought you the news that Acer will soon be offering the A1 Liquid Android phone with WVGA display. What we didn’t say was availability deadlines or pricing schemes. Well it would... now appear as though our favorite source for prices and release details, eXpansys, are listing said device as €379.99 (~$570). Furthermore, the website shows the device as available Saturday 28th Novem...

Today Acer formally launched its new “Liquid” line of Android powered smartphones.  Though the press release, found after the jump, fails to mention the new phone by name, we have every... reason to believe that this is the A1 we’ve seen before, due to its specs.

As to those specs, we know the phone has a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, an 800 x 480 pixel capacitive touchscr...

Back in March we attended a UK Press Launch for Acer’s up-coming smartphone range. At the time it seemed to focus a lot on Windows Mobile, and this was justified because Acer believed there to be... a good level of synchronisation between Windows computer and Windows mobile devices. This is clearly a priority for them. However, during the event I asked some probing questions into the likelihood...

As the title would suggest, there are a couple of interesting applications that will make their way to Android in the coming months. First to receive a mention is eReader, a Barnes & Noble Company.... eReader is effectively the world’s largest eBook store, even if they say so themselves. It offers a huge range of eBooks for your iPhone, Windows Mobile Pocket PC and Smartphone, Palm Treo and Centro o...

According to Digitimes, Acer chairman JT Wang has said that Acer’s upcoming Android powered netbook computers will actually ship with both Android and Windows pre-loaded in a dual-boot configuration.

To... me, that seems to imply that they aren’t going to put as much effort into tweaking Android for netbooks as they could.  At least not right away.  The company appears to be hedging its bets, and in doing so it...

In a bit of an unexpected turn of events, Acer announced that it will start offering Android based netbooks in Q3 of this year – before it gets Android based smartphones out the door.

Acer’s... Jim Wong was quoted by Reuters as saying the following at the Computex show in Taiwan:

“Today’s netbooks are not close to perfection at all. In two years, it will all be very different.  If w...
