Acer Liquid Glow Expected UK Release Date and Price

Acer's more budget friendly Android smartphone that was announced at MWC 2012 alongside its more powerful brother, Acer CloudMobile, is Acer Liquid Glow. Although its specs don't pack quite the same punch as its better endowed sibling, there's always room for a few more entry level Android phones. Entry level phones in 2012 have plenty of added extras too, such as NFC!

As you can see in the picture below, Acer Glow will be available in three cheerful colours on launch which go by the names; Cat’s-Eye Black, Alpine White and Sakura Pink.

Acer Liquid Glow, NFC enabled Android phone.

Weighing in at 125 grams, which just happens to be the exact same weight as Acer CloudMobile, Acer Liquid Glow measures 117 mm x 58.5 mm x 11.5 mm respectively. It has a 3.7 inch capacitive touchscreen with a rather poor 480 x 800 pixel resolution. It runs on a 1 GHz single-core processor, again slightly disappointing, especially in light of the quad-core explosion we're seeing this year, but still a step up from 2011's 600 MHz - 800 MHz entry level offerings.

There is a 5 MP snapper on the rear of Acer Liquid Glow, but sadly there is no front facing camera, something which is almost default in 2012. 1 GB internal storage is ample to start with, and there is a microSD slot to swell your phone memory with up to an extra 32 GB.

On a more positive note, it's unusual to see NFC on a budget friendly device, but Acer Liquid Glow has it! Liquid Glow ships with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) already installed, which is something that shouldn't be a maybe, as it is with many other Android giants such as Samsung, who prefer to leave your nerves in tatters as you cling on with blind faith, hoping that they deliver the promised update.

Release Date and Price

Acer Liquid Glow release date is set for early Summer, USA release is expected to be either Q2 to early Q3, although there have been rumours that the USA won't see Acer Liquid Glow, period. Expected release date in India is Q2 2012, around April - May.

The price is expected to be around £211 GBP, $336 USD, €250 Euro or Rs.20,000 INR.
