MWC 2012: Acer Liquid Glow with Android 4.0 ICS announced

Acer, ahead of MWC 2012, has announced a new Android smartphone adding to their Liquid line of devices. Dubbed as the Acer Liquid Glow, the smartphone was designed with style in mind, I am pretty sure about that. Anyway, Acer will be showcasing this device at Barcelona. The Liquid Glow, does not actually glow in the dark but it sure glows in the sense that it is running on Android 4.0 ICS and is positioned in the mid-range price range and targeted for the social-networking youth.

Acer was not able to give us the full detailed specs of the device but we know that the Liquid Glow will sport a 3.7" WVGA display, NFC, a 5MP rear facing camera with LED Flash, a 1GHz single-core processor, 512MB RAM, and 1GB of internal storage.

Acer is scheduled to launch the device in early Summer of 2012.

Press Release:

The New Liquid Glow Smartphone - A handful of friendship and fun

Acer presents its Liquid Glow smartphone at the 2012 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Based on the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, this smartphone brings the ultimate balance between style, performance and affordability — ideal for today's fun-seeking, social-networking youth.

The Liquid Glow sports a 3.7-inch screen and portrays Acer's signature look with nice curves, chrome details, and a soft-touch casing combined to deliver the perfect size, grip and feel. This new smartphone will be available in a series of trendy colors: Sakura Pink, Alpine White, and Cat's-eye Black. Going a step further, the onscreen display style varies with the external color, making each smartphone a unique fashion statement.

The Liquid Glow brings together the power and the convenience of Ice Cream Sandwich, providing a user-friendly interface along with widgets to easily stay connected, entertained and updated. It also works with the latest voice-input engine from Google, which guarantees a continuous "open microphone" experience and streaming voice recognition.

The smartphone's 5 MP rear camera features an LED flash for low light, as well as panoramic image capture and touch focus. With Android Beam, photos can be shared by a single tap with another NFC powered Android device, without the hassle of launching application or pairing. What’s more, Android Beam can also share anything like contacts, favorite apps, music or videos instantaneously through NFC.

Please come and see the new Liquid Glow smartphone at Acer Pod, located inside the Google Android Booth, Hall 8 - 8C25.

The Acer Liquid Glow will be available in early summer 2012.
