Acer launches five Android phones in Australia
Acer has launched a slew of Android smartphones in Australia today. These smartphones include Acer beTouch E120 and E130, Liquid E, Liquid E Ferrari Special Edition, and Acer Stream.
As, Acer has not partnered with any carriers for the local launch, so all the smartphones will be available unlocked & as outright purchase.
Acer beTouch E120 – $399
Acer beTouch E130 – $499
Acer Liquid E – $699
Acer Liquid E Ferrari Special Edition – $999
Acer Stream – $799
All the five Android phones will be available in the market this month. They will be distributed by Ingram Micro and will be sold through major retailers including Harvey Norman.
Talking about the Android version on these phones, beTouch E120 and E130 units both run the outdated 1.6 version, while the Liquid E, Liquid E Ferrari and the Stream all run the 2.1 “Éclair” versions. Acer claims the smartphones will be upgradeable to Android 2.2, dubbed “Froyo,” sometime in 2011.
Acer beTouch E120 has a relatively small 2.8 inch QVGA touchscreen, while beTouch E130 differs from its sibling primarily in the form of a fixed QWERTY keyboard.
