Acer Liquid A1 hands-on shows new UI, nifty status LEDs

Acer's Liquid A1 Android smartphone may have Snapdragon under the hood, but that's not enough to keep us happy these days.  We also like to see a custom UI, and from the early details coming out of HDBlog.it it looks as though Acer have done a little - though not a lot - to tweak OS 1.6 Donut.  In fact, we're more excited by the little status LEDs they've embedded into the top edge of the Liquid, to show whether you have new messages and what the battery status is.
