Acer Liquid A1 – the first Android phone with a Snapdragon CPU

Acer has just announced its first Android smartphone – the Acer Liquid, which is also the world’s first Android handset powered by Qualcomm’s 1GHz Snapdragon processor.

Previously known as Acer A1, the Liquid runs Android 1.6 Donut (not Android 2.0 as rumored) and uses a “new user interface with easy access to entertainment and web bookmarks.”

Its specs include a WVGA (800 x 480 pixels) touchscreen display, HSPA connectivity, and a 5MP camera with autofocus and geotagging.

The smartphone also features a Spinlets application that offers “free streaming of worldwide music and video” for sharing “with friends and family through web-posting or e-mail.” Moreover, there are many social networking sites integrated, including YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and Picasa.

Electricpig has some live photos of the Acer Liquid:

Acer didn’t say when the Liquid A1 will be available, and neither for what price. Anyway, the smartphone should come in three color versions: white, black and red.

    How come there are no front facing cameras on Android devices??

    I've asked this a dozen times on different boards and I have yet to receive any kind of answer.

    The Liquid has a WVGA touchscreen, HSPA connectivity and a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus, geo-tagging, ISO and a self-timer.

    The speedy Qualcomm chipset also means the Liquid can support 3D graphics, and the phone will run Android 1.6… GOod but not great. Details: http://bit.ly/acer-liquid-a1-details
