Acer Liquid A1 Now Available in UK – First Snapdragon Android Smartphone

Acer_Liquid_A1Cast your gadgety minds back to October and Acer’s announcement of their Liquid A1 Android powered smartphone.

Now, The Acer Liquid A1 is for sale and stands as being the first handset from anyone to run Google’s mobile Andoid OS on Qualcomm’s 1GHz Snapdragon hardware – albeit underclocked to 768MHz. Don’t ask me why – they just have.

But if you do buy this you’ll have the bragging rights to having the only model phone to run this processor for a while as, to my mind, the others wont start to appear til well into 2010.

Now, most companies would’ve created quite the song-and-dance about the release of a world’s first and new product – but not so Acer. I’ve discovered this news quite by accident to be honest.

As a recap: The Liquid A1 features a 3.5in WVGA capacitive touchscreen, WiFi, Bluetooth and a five megapixel camera. and Amazon are still listing it for pre-order but eXpansys and others are already retailing for next day delivery.
