Yesterday Acer held a press conference and announced that an unnamed 4.8-inch Android device will be shipping globally starting April 2011, but something more important to us Canadians was revealed during the Q&A period. Somebody in the audience asked if the Acer Liquid Metal was going to be released in the States and the answer was that currently AT&T and T-Mobile are in talks but it’s confirmed that Rogers Wireless will be releasing this device. There was no launch date or pricing revealed.
Specs of the Liquid Metal has it finished in chrome and the back cover is stainless steel. The weight is 135 grams (for comparison the iPhone 4 weighs 137 grams) and runs Android OS 2.2 (Froyo), has a 3.6-inch capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 480 x 800, 5 megapixel camera with auto-focus, LED flash and can record 720p HD video, 800 MHz Qualcomm 7230 processor, 3.5mm headset jack, WiFi, Bluetooth, hold up to 32GB.
Sounds good… is it worth waiting for though?
