Acer Liquid Specs Coming Together

acer_liquid_04The announcement yesterday of Acer’s Liquid handset was big news even without a full set of specs to drool over.  Today, a more complete list of hardware goodies has found its way into the hands of our friends at (translated).  They were also able to get some time with the phone and snap a few pictures.

It’s not quite clear whether or not the processor will be 1GHz or 768MHz, but either is a vast improvement over the current staple of handsets.

  • bah! no keyboard what a waste

    Correct me if I'm wrong but those look like TMO bands to me ….

  • EWA

    Nope. AT&T bands for US. AT&T runs on 1900&850 UMTS.

    It pains me to correct you since i was hoping to see this on T-Mobile but T-Mobile uses 1700/2100, 850/1900 is actually AT&T which is a real bummer. I guess I will have to wait longer for either a T-Mobile or Sprint phone with WVGA and snapdragon

    It pains me to correct you but …
    The native T-Mobile network currently … uses the GSM/GPRS 1900 MHz frequency-band, making it the largest 1900 MHz network in the United States.

    the 1700/2100 T-mobile band is for their 3G ( services not for voice. So you can use the phone on their network. Will do just fine over EDGE.

  • pete

    what kind of memory/sd card will it have

  • c0z

    Not sure how I feel about the extended eye around the camera lens. Looks like it might take a beating.
