Acer Kicks off New “Liquid” Series with Snapdragon Android Phone

There’s some big Android news coming out of the Acer camp today!  The first Android phone out of the gate with a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor will belong to their new “Liquid” series of handsets.  With a High Definition, Wide-VGA capacitive touchscreen, a 5MP camera, and “no idle-time”, this ain’t your buddy’s G1 were talking about here.

Other fun Acer Liquid stuff gleaned from the press release:

Specs:

  • HSPA Connectivity
  • Android 1.6 (Donut)
  • Wide-VGA (presumed to be 800×480) touch screen
  • 5 MP camera with geo-tagging, ISO, self-timer options and accelerated auto-focus performance
  • Acer-designed power management system for longer battery
  • A new user interface with easy access to entertainment and web bookmarks
  • Exclusive Spinlets™ application providing free streaming of worldwide music and video, that can be shared with friends and family through web-posting or e-mail
  • Smart integration of Facebook™, Twitter™, Youtube™, Picasa™ and Flickr™ in the address book, with realtime notification of status or content updates

No word on when, where, or with which carrier(s) it will be released, but it’s exciting news nonetheless!

I wonder if we’ll see Picasa integration come to already released Android phones?

One of my sources was on-hand today at the event in London where the phone was shown off. Here are some pic’s to tide you over.
