Acer updates Liquidmini mobile phones

Taiwanese computer company Acer has announced it has updated its Liquidmini handset range to bring in a new Android operating system, user interface and colour range.

The Acer Liquidmini was officially launched back in January, as an abridged version of their flagship Android Liquid Metal phone.

Acer’s Liquidmini arrives with a 3.2-inch display, with a HVGA resolution and a capacitive touch screen, a 600Mhz processor, a 5 megapixel camera capable of 480p video recording, whilst shipping with the Android ‘Froyo’ 2.2 OS.

The update to the Liquidmini brings with it Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3, with the Acer 4.2 user interface and a new series of colours to the phones.

The new Acer UI has widgets that now can be placed on the home screen, with more space for wallpapers and applications where it’s possible to quickly switch between those apps by simply long-pressing on the home key.

Acer’s SocialJogger 2.0 application now integrates Flickr and Plurk, on top of the already incorporated Facebook and Twitter in a single feed with a 3D navigation effect.

The new colours are the summer range, with a vibrant scheme that encompasses that season with the cherry, lagoon, pearl and steel different colours.
