20 April 2010
Excerpt: Acer’s Liquid created quite a stir upon arrival. Unfortunately, it’s living proof of the adage first opinions are not necessarily the last. Let that be the solitary spoiler. The handset is well packaged and the accessories while adequately encompassing have mediocre build quality.

Pros: Beautiful exterior, Ample screen size, Bonus features such as Spinlets and Acer-designed widgets for ease of use
Cons: Limited number of pages for homescreen, Sub-par imaging quality with no LED flash, Unresponsive virtual QWERTY keyboard
Conclusion: The Acer Liquid A1 is a solid high end Android smartphone. The no-contract price isn't bad, in fact it's less expensive than the Nexus One. We like the sharp and bright high resolution display, the overall design and fast CPU.
Pros: High res display, fast CPU, 3G HSPDA on AT&T's 1900MHz band.
Cons: Currently runs on the older Android 1.6 OS, battery life is so-so.
Excerpt: Acer may not be making a big song and dance about the couple of new devices that it has on show in Barcelona at Mobile World Congress 2012, but it certainly has a duo that are making a few ripples among the industry types at the show.
