MWC 2012: Acer Liquid Glow E330 with Android 4.0 ICS hands-on

Officially introduced last week, the Acer Liquid Glow E330 was sitting quietly at Acer’s booth inside the Android Stand at MWC 2012, so we had to check it out.

Although the Liquid Glow runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (with Acer’s own UI on top), it’s not a high-end device, but a mid-end one. Its features include a 3.7 inch WVGA display, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3.5mm headset jack, 1GHz single-core processor, 1GB of ROM, 512MB of RAM, 5MP rear camera with flash, and a 2GB memory card pre-installed.

Overall, the Liquid Glow is a pretty nice smartphone for its category. It reminded me of Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Neo – they kind of have the same shape, and they’re about the same size, although the Acer handset seemed a bit thinner.

As previously reported, the Acer Liquid Glow will be launched starting “early summer”, in several colors (including black, white and pink).  We don’t know its price yet, but it shouldn’t bee a high one – I’d say somewhere around $350.
