Acer unveils its first Intel-powered Android smartphone
Acer has unveiled its latest and first mid-range Android smartphone that is powered by a single-core Intel Atom processor – the Liquid C1.
The Acer Liquid C1 packs a 4.3-inch IPS display with a resolution of 960 x 540 which equates to 256ppi. Like its sibling, the Liquid E1, it has a 5 megapixel camera, VGA front-facing, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage with microSD support, HSPA, Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth 2.1. However, it is powered by a single-core 1.2GHz Atom Z2420 Lexington CPU with Hyper-Threading support and a larger 2,000 mAh battery. The only downside is it runs Android Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box. No official news yet on Jellybean upgrade.
The Acer Liquid C1 has a price tag of $335 or almost Php14,000 and will be available in black and white. It will go on sale first in Thailand this month followed by the rest of the South East Asian markets.
