Acer gets into the Android game

Even as Windows Mobile 7 is set to wow us, more and more manufacturers are heading towards Android. Case in point: the Acer Liquid e. This 786MHz Snapdragon device is as bog standard as they come with GPS, WiFi, and HSDAP support. It also runs Android 2.1 and should be nice and fast. It has a 3.5-inch display and looks like a Zune mated with an N1.

The saddest thing about Android? Now every Android phone will basically be a meh-too launch. Android is the new feature phone. No availability or price, but apparently the name “Liquid e” is actually a date rape drug. Fancy!
