Acer has recently released an Android 2.1/Eclair upgrade for its first Android smartphone, the Acer Liquid A1. While the follower, the Acer Liquid E with Android 2.1, was released shortly after the Liquid, it took a little bit longer for Acer to also make Eclair available for Liquid A1 users but finally it's here. The download on Acer's service & support website comes and goes, first it was available from the French site but disappeared after, this morning it was available on the UK site and now it's not available there anymore but now it's available from the German site but anyway - it's here (or there) available and the 134 MB firmware upgrade can be downloaded free of charge.
In addition to the Android 2.1 own bug fixes and enhancements, Acer says that its Liquid upgrade includes contacts and dialer improvements, enhanced UI for better user experience and improved IME for better text input speed.
To get it, follow one of the links bellow, click Smart Handheld, Liquid, Liquid and select Android 2.1 Eclair from the drop-down menu.
