Review: Acer Liquid MT Smartphone – Part 1

I’ve been supplied an Acer Liquid MT smartphone running Android Froyo which includes Flash support for me to review this week.  The first thing that you notice about it is that it has a 3.61” capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels WVGA which is visually impressive. You get proximity, and light sensors as well as a multi-touch interface. The next thing that you notice is that the case which is a black plastic with chrome trim attracts fingerprints like politicians are attracted to bribes. Be prepared to wipe the phone clean frequently. The right side of the phone has volume and camera controls. The top has a power/lock button and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The bottom of the device houses a small opening for the microphone, and a microUSB port for charging/PC connectivity. In terms of wireless access, you get HSPA 14.4Mbps, Bluetooth and WiFi (802.11n). There’s a camera that does video (720P) and still photos (5 MP). You’ll need storage for videos and pictures, so you get a microSD port underneath the back panel that will take up to a 32GB card.

I’ve been playing with it for the last day or so and it seems to be an interesting phone so far. I’ll post my impressions of it in the days to come.

Stay tuned.
