Acer just announced its new Acer Liquid - the world's first Qualcomm Snapdragon Android 1.6 Donut smartphone, featuring a WVGA touchscreen which combines cutting-edge technologies, software innovation and an ultra-fluid user interface to create an all-new mobile experience. It is the ideal solution for users demanding the best from their devices, and in particular outstanding multimedia, web browsing, social media integration and video streaming. It also brings smartphone product design forward with its unique and modern style.

The Acer Liquid is the first WVGA Android smartphone in the market, benefiting from the latest release of the Android 1.6 Operating System (aka Donut) and the first Android smartphone in the market equipped with a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. This platform brings unique benefits for the end users and paves the way for a new wave of innovations from the developer community.

With its high definition capacitive WVGA touchscreen (WVGA), the Acer Liquid offers today an unparalleled experience when watching pictures or videos. But it also holds a promise for the future: the promise of an abundance of new applications on Android Smart Handhelds - games, professional applications and web applets that will enrich the end user experience. Now developers can be assured that their investment will build upon a standard resolution for the years to come. It's powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor at 1 GHz and thanks to the high-speed internet access (HSPA) brings to life the Android experience.

Acer Liquid also bolsters a set of unique features developed by Acer and its partners including an improved power management to help achieve longer battery autonomy for intense users, a new user interface with easy access to entertainment and web bookmarks, an optimized camera with geo-tagging, ISO, self-timer options and accelerated auto-focus performance, exclusive Spinlets application providing free streaming of worldwide music and video, that can be shared with friends and family through web-posting or E-Mail. Furthermore, the Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Picasa and Flickr are integrated in the address book, offering realtime notification of status or content updates.

With ellipse curves, a choice of red, white and black colors, and a slim body shape, the Acer Liquid will please style-seeking consumers. Designed for ergonomy, the Liquid fits well in the hand and displays a smooth finish. The fluidity of its curves gives the Acer Liquid its unique character and unconventional style.

A release date and price wasn't announced today.

Cheers ~ Arne

Unfortunately no official photo(s) yet! Tried my best to get one but Acer is quite shy about the design. However, I was told that the photos on other sites don't represent the actual device! Will try my best to get a photo or at least a rendering as soon as possible!
UPDATE: Okay, we managed to get a front photo of the Acer Liquid from CNET UK which has even more photos from the Acet press event in London.
