Acer recently launched its new Acer Liquid Express smartphone in the UK. It is the company’s first NFC-enabled Android smartphone. This handset will be exclusively available for the customers of T-Mobile and Orange in the UK. Acer Liquid Express runs on the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) Operating System.
“Even if contactless technology has only just started spreading across the UK, it is important for the customer to take into account future need when choosing a new model. In a few months’ time quite a number of smartphone users, whose new smartphones don’t include NFC functionality, will have to change their mobile in order to benefit from this new technology”, says Allen Burnes, Vice-President of Acer’s THBG division.
Acer Liquid Express features a 3.5 inch touchscreen display, sporting a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels, 800 MHz Snapdragon processor, Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) OS, Acer Breeze UI, Wi-Fi 801.11 b/g/n, 3G Connectivity, 5 megapixel camera with auto-focus and LED flash, geo-tagging and so on.
