Guys and gals, here's a bit of tech trivia for y'all! Don't you know that PC giant Acer, a company which is known primarily for desktops, notebooks, and other computing thingamajigs, actually has a smartphone lineup? And, guess what? They've just unleashed a trio of new handsets here in the Philippines! Here they are, the Android-powered Liquid Z2, Liquid E1, and Liquid C1. Don't be fooled by their names though, these babies are touted as rock-solid performers that also have that sleek vibe going on.
Acer Liquid Z2
First up, we have the Liquid Z2. We'd like to call it the bunso of the bunch because of its size and looks which we reckon will appeal to the young 'uns. It packs a 1GHz dual-core processor which works in tandem with 512MB of RAM. That should give you enough juice for basic smartphone chores like playing apps, games, and a little mobile browsing.
In the eye-candy department, you've got a 3.5-inch 320 x 480 touchscreen. The Liquid Z2 also packs a 5-megapixel shooter as well as wireless connectivity over Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 3G to always keep you in the loop. To make things more interesting, the Liquid Z2 is also a dual-SIM Android Jelly Bean handset! Not bad, we say.
Acer Liquid E1
Next, we have the Liquid E1 which is also the largest of the brood in terms of displaysize. This one comes with a sizable 4.5-inch touchscreen with an pretty impressive resolution of 960 x 540. Running the show for this smartphone is the combo of a 1GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM, something that more serious users would like.
The imaging department also had an upgrade as the Liquid E1 has a 5-megapixel shooter with auto-focus and flash and a secondary cam up front for your video calling needs. There's also this nifty feature called Float Caller which basically lets you answer or reject a call (or even reply with an SMS) without having to cancel or stop a video if you're watching one. Wi-Fi, 3G, and Bluetooth are, as expected, part of the mix. Add to that dual-SIM capability and Android Jelly Bean, just like on the Liquid Z2.
