Acer joins Android mobile phone arms race

Computer giant Acer has fired a warning shot in the battle for market share for Android phones with the news that its debut on Google’s platform will pack in a powerful 1GHz processor.

Unveiled today, the Liquid A1 is the first to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset, which promises to allow owners to use applications simultaneously with less lag than on current generation Android mobiles.

Running on version 1.6 of the Android operating system, the handset will also boast a five megapixel camera which is optimised for geo-tagging, a 800 x 480 WVGA capacitive touchscreen and HSDPA support for fast web browsing and downloads.

Buyers will be able to choose from red, white and black colour options, but it is as yet unknown if these will be exclusive to particular UK carriers.

Acer is also set to release nine Windows Mobile powered mobiles this year, lead by the Acer F1.
