Acer Liquid Glow goes on sale for £148

The Acer Liquid Glow, a smartphone that was unveiled at MWC back in February 2012, has finally reached our shores and is available from UK retailer Expansys for £148.

The device, which runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, comes with a 5-megapixel rear camera with flash, a 1,300mAh battery, NFC capabilities, a 3.7in 800 x 480 resolution display, a single core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 processor clocked at 1GHz, 512MB of RAM, 1GB internal storage, a microSD card slot, Wi-Fi, but apparently no front-facing camera.

The phone will face the likes of the Orange San Francisco II or the Huawei Ascend G300 as well as the Sony Xperia U (which has a dual-core processor) and the Orange San Diego (which has more processing power, more memory and a better camera).

Its main forte lies in the fact that it runs Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich and that it is unlocked/unbranded.

Acer’s Android-based smartphone have not been excelling over the last two years. Its Liquid range has so far proved to be an under-performer compared to the likes of HTC and ZTE as it fails to capture more marketshare
