Acer Liquid Metal Android Phone With Froyo Announced

Acer Liquid MetalAcer have today finally announced their next Android handset, the Acer Liquid Metal.

The new Liquid Metal Android phone will feature the latest Android 2.2 Froyo software along with Acer's Breeze UI, which offers users an array of widgets and features - even from the lock screen.

In terms of hardware the Liquid Metal fits right in with the best Android handsets currently on the market, with a 3.6-inch capacitive LCD screen, a 5.0 mega-pixel camera with auto-focus and an LED flash, and 720p HD recording capability.

Despite Acer promising 'lightning fast navigation', the Liquid Metal processor is only a Qualcomm 7230 800 MHz offering, so it'll be interesting to see just how that holds up with hands-on testing.

The 3G signal has been boosted to HSDPA 14.4Mbps and Wi-Fi to include 802.11n (where the connections allow, this means browsing up to five times faster than other devices, according to Acer).

Priced at £299, the Acer Liquid Metal will be offered in two variants: brown, with a UK release date of mid November, and silver, which is set to land in December.
