Acer A1 - First Snapdragon Android Smartphone

Acer have officially announced their first Android smartphone called the Acer Liquid A1. Interestingly, it is also the very first Android handset to utilize Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor. The capacitive touchscreen has the impressive 800 x 480 WVGA resolution (same as in Nokia's N900 Maemo 5 device). Liquid runs Android version 1.6 a.k.a. Donut. The speedy Snapdragon chipset also means that the Acer Liquid can feature high performance 3D graphics. Acer has also developed some proprietary extensions to Android platform including, for instance, geo-tagging, Spinlets™ application providing free streaming of worldwide music and video, and smart integration of the most popular social services (seems to be the trend for Android platforms nowadays). Release dates and prices were not yet revealed by Acer.
