UK: Acer Liquid, beTouch E110, and Tempo X960 now just £79.99 SIM-free
If you like bargain basement prices, here’s something for you. Do note though that you’ll also need to love old smartphones.
Well known UK-based retailer Expansys is having a clearance sale of sorts for a few Acer smartphones. You can now get three different devices for just £79.99. SIM-free and unlocked, in case you were wondering. So yes, extremely cheap. However, none of these handsets was launched this year. In fact two of them are from 2009. If you’re still reading, here are the details.
The Acer Liquid runs Android 1.6 and has a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 3.5-inch 800×480 touchscreen, a 5 MP camera, microSD card support, Bluetooth, HSPA, GPS, Wi-Fi, 256 MB of RAM, 512 MB of ROM, and a 1,350 mAh battery. Expansys offers it in either white or red. The good news (if you can call it that) is that you might be able to upgrade the Liquid’s OS to Android 2.1. Which is still very old, but at least it’s newer than the positively ancient 1.6.
And speaking of ancient, the Acer beTouch E110 runs Android 1.5. The handset has a 416 MHz processor, 256 MB of RAM, 256 MB of ROM, a 3 MP camera, a 2.8-inch 240×320 touchscreen, HSPA, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 1,500 mAh battery. If you’re interested, you can pick one up from Expansys here.
The Acer Tempo X960 has a 533 MHz processor, 128 MB of RAM, 256 MB of ROM, a 2.8-inch 480×640 resistive touchscreen, HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, microSD card support, and a 3 MP camera. You can get one from Expansys over here.
