Android strengthens in India with Acer Liquid
Bangalore: Acer has launched Liquid in India, which the company claims is the world's first Qualcomm Snapdragon processor based and world's first Android 1.6 high definition smartphone, combining cutting-edge technologies, software innovation and an ultra-fluid user interface to create an all-new mobile experience. It is the ideal solution for users demanding the best from their devices, and in particular outstanding multimedia, web browsing, social media integration and video streaming. It also brings smartphone product design forward with its unique and modern style.

"Liquid exemplifies speed in style. With ellipse curves, a choice of red, white and black colors, and a slim body shape, Liquid will please the style-seeking smartphone consumer. Liquid, powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon running Android 1.6 delivers real-time ubiquitous communication and location-aware content. Liquid is outstanding for multimedia, web browsing, social media integration and video streaming." said Richard Tan, Country Head India, Acer Smart Handheld Business Group (SHBG).

Acer Liquid is the first Wide-VGA smartphone in the market benefiting from the latest release of the Android 1.6 Operating System (aka Donut) and is perhaps the most compelling Android smartphone in the market equipped with the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.

With its High Definition capacitive touch screen (Wide VGA), Acer Liquid offers today an unparalleled experience when watching pictures or videos. But it also holds a promise for the future: the promise of an abundance of new applications on Android Smart Handhelds - games, professional applications and web applets that will enrich the end user experience. Now developers can be assured that their investment will build upon a standard resolution for the years to come

Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, Acer Liquid provides instant access to web pages, smooth streaming of videos or music, and instant response from popular mail, maps and search applications. The high-speed processing capability and high-speed internet access (HSPA) of Snapdragon brings to life the Android experience: no idle-time, almost instant uploads of web pages and downloads of rich multimedia contents. The developer community can now take full advantage of these capabilities to bring to market innovative applications that demand raw computing power and superior handling of 3D graphics

Acer Liquid also bolsters a set of unique features developed by Acer and its partners. It has improved power management to help achieve longer battery autonomy for intense users. Liquid has new user interface with easy access to entertainment and web bookmarks, and an optimized camera with geo-tagging, ISO, self-timer options and accelerated auto-focus performance. The phone also has Acer's exclusive Spinlets application which provides free streaming of worldwide music and video, that can be shared with friends and family through web-posting or e-mail.

Acer Liquid has smart integration of Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Picasa and Flickr in the address book, with real-time notification of status or content updates. Acer Liquid will be priced at 24,900 (with 2 GB micro SD) and would be available across major retailers in India
