Acer Liquid A1 gets previewed: speedy Android but little customization

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 may have been making the Android headlines this week, but it's not the first smartphone running Google's open-source OS to pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset.  That honor goes to the Acer Liquid A1 - though the company have apparently underclocked the CPU to 768MHz - set to be the first Snapdragon Android phone to reach consumers' hands.  Arne from the::unwired has been playing with the Liquid and has put together a "preview" review.

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.

Acer wearable products confirmed: prototypes already in the wild

During the latest launch of their Liquid Z5 smartphone in Taipei, Acer re-confirmed the idea that they'd be moving into the wearables market - and that they'd be doing so soon. Suggesting that they'd shown off a number of wearable devices to some of the company's clients at CES 2014 (behind the scenes, of course), Acer left reporters with precious little solid information on what their devices would be - or when they'd actually be launching on the global market.
