Acer Brings Liquid E2 Smartphone to Media Enthusiasts

Most of us use our phones for their everyday purposes, but for those who require just a bit more in terms of media performance, Acer has now brought out the Liquid E2. The phone is packed with a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, but only 1 GB of RAM and 4 GB of internal storage. The phone’s RAM and storage size alone is enough to put off potential users, but the prices make up for it: only $299 for a single SIM model and $330 for a dual SIM model.

The larger 4.5-inch screen features an IPS panel of 960 x 540 pixels, and the mobile connection is an HSPA+, allowing for a theoretical transfer of 42 mbps. With an 8 megapixel camera that can record in 1080p at 30 fps, and the dual speakers with DTS sound support, this phone is suited for HD videos. Measuring 131 x 68 x 10 mm and weighing 140 grams, the phone is comfortably small, with a respectable 2000 mAh battery. Other specs include 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0 +EDR, FM-receiver, GPS, accelerometer, e-compass, light sensor and proximity sensor. Lastly, coupled with a micro-USB port, Acer makes up for the lack of storage through a Micro-SD expansion slot for internal memory.

    What version of Android will it have? When and where will it be available?

    Honestly, at that price, you're better off getting the Lenovo S890 which is only USD230 where I live with almost completely similar specs, aside from the Core count, which is 2 instead of 4

    Or...and this is just, a RADICAL and crazy idea....go buy a Nexus 4 for the same price, which has a better screen, more RAM, better support, the latest Android updates, larger battery, etc.
