Earlier on in the year Acer announced a budget Ice Cream Sandwich device called the Liquid Glow and it was due to be released in a selection of colours. Retailer Expansys now has the Black and White models in stock and the price is definitely a wallet friendly £147.99 inc Vat.
The spec for the Liquid glow is as follows.
- Display – 480 x 800 pixels, 3.7 inches (252 ppi pixel density)
- Memory – Card slot microSD, up to 32 GB
- Internal Memory – 1 GB, 512 MB RAM
- Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi hotspot
- Bluetooth with A2DP, EDR
- Camera – 5 MP, 2592 x 1944 pixels, autofocus, LED flash
- OS – Android OS, v4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
- CPU – 1 GHz
- Sensors – Accelerometer, proximity, compass
- Colours – Black, White, Pink
- Active noise cancellation with dedicated mic
So a mixed bag of pro ands cons with this one. Micro SD slot, NFC and Ice Cream Sandwich are definitely plus point for the Liquid Glow. The CPU and the Ram are the most obvious cons for the device. But as a second device or a phone for a teenager or wife this would be ideal.
The budget range is definitely heating up at the moment with the G300, the ZTE Grand X, the HTC One v and the Desire C all around the same price point.
