Acer Liquid Mini Handsets Get Android 2.3 Gingerbread Upgrade
The Liquid Mini lineup from Acer didn’t exactly shine out at the reasonably priced end of the Android smart phone spectrum. The Taiwanese tech giant hopes to turn things around a bit by freshening up these medium range handsets with some serious updates. The reboot versions will have 600MHz Qualcomm MSM7227 processor, Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS and the company’s latest version of custom UI among other features.
The notification bar has been repositioned so that it doesn’t get in the way of typing. Under the hood, the HSDPA-enabled device packs 512 MB RAM, 512 MB ROM, as well as microSD card slot for memory expansion. There is also going to be SocialJogger 2.0 and DLNA support that allows streaming media to and from the device. The color options are also updated to include steel, cherry, pearl, and lagoon. No word on pricing and availability as of now.
