Acer Liquid A1 hits FCC with AT&T 3G support

Only the other day we were watching the Acer Liquid A1 - the company's first Android smartphone - being joyously unboxed in a couple of videos, and now there's talk of the handset landing on AT&T at some point.  The Liquid A1 has been spotted running through the FCC's gauntlet of wireless testing fire, complete with support for the 850 and 1900 bands.  They just so happen to be the 3G frequencies AT&T use in the US.

Now there's no official word from either Acer or AT&T, and of course the FCC has no say in the matter either, so we're just speculating about the Acer Liquid's eventual carrier destination.  However AT&T are yet to release an Android device, and with their rivals in the US beginning to gather momentum with the platform we wouldn't be surprised to find that they were shopping around.

As Motorola have found over the past couple of years, it's taking an increasing amount to get geeks and gadget lovers to stand up and pay attention to a new cellphone. Right now, one sure-fire way of doing that is by launching an Android device, and so that's what the ailing mobile giant has done in the shape of the Motorola CLIQ (aka the DEXT outside of the US). Not only does the CLIQ promise to make a splash among Android handsets, it also marks the debut of Motorola's attempt to corral social networking into a mobile device. In our review we'll not only be looking at the CLIQ hardware, as Motorola's first-generation Android smartphone, but at MOTOBLUR and its potential beyond the CLIQ.
