Acer announces its first Android device

Acer announced its first non-Windows Mobile smartphone today and it looks like it will be a monster. The new Acer Liquid will run on the Android 1.6 platform (aka Donut) powered by Qualcomm’s 1GHz Snapdragon processor. This sleek device has a large HD capacitive touchscreen as well as a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and geo-tagging. Acer says the Liquid will come equipped with an enhanced user interface, and it seems as though Acer might market the Liquid as a social networker’s go-to gadget with automatic Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Picasa and Flickr integration. There weren’t any details about a release date, price or carrier support, but it looks like we have a race between HTC and Acer for the first Android device sporting the snappy Snapdragon.
