Acer’s first Android phone, the Liquid A1, released in December of 2009, seems to not have been forgotten by the Taiwanese company’s software support folks.
An update is now available for it that takes its operating system from Android 1.6 to Android 2.1.
Quick spec recap for the Acer Liquid A1 (sometimes referred to just as Acer Liquid):
- 768 MHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor
- 3.5″ 480 x 800 touchscreen
- 256 MB RAM
- microSD card slot
- HSDPA 7.2 Mb/s and HSUPA 2.0 Mb/s
- WiFi 802.11 b/g
- Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP
- 5 Megapixel autofocus camera with VGA video recording at 20 fps
- 1350 mAh battery
- Dimensions: 115 x 62.5 x 12.5 mm
- Weight: 135 g
Looks like its successor, the Acer Liquid E, just had one of its biggest advantages matched. However, the Liquid E will get you double the amount of RAM in the Liquid A1.
If you don’t care much about that and have seen a good deal on this phone but were holding back because of its old operating system version, now may be the time to reconsider!
