Today, when everyone is aggressive to take the top spot in the smartphone food chain, Acer goes at a bit slower pace. Slow, but steady we would like to call it, as it tries to secure its rightful place in the middle. The newly announced Acer Liquid E1 will surely help.
Acer‘s latest mid-ranger offers a 4,5-inch qHD display, 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 5MP shooter and 0,3MP front-facing camera, 1760mAh battery, and Android 4.1 Jellybean in the heart of the phone. It features a sleek design, with red accents on the top and bottom, and a pattern on the back cover. Acer obviously has a respect for Google, thus taking a design cue from the Nexus family with the buttonless front panel of the device. The software is so lightly-customized that an Android newbie may need to look harder to differentiate it from vanilla Android.
As for the price, it’s not been outed yet, but we don’t expect it to rise above $300. Anyway, it’s an interesting device that many would like to check out.
