Acer’s new smartphone line-up is led by the Acer Liquid Cl, which measures a mere 1 Omm in thickness and weighs 140g. Its 4.3-inch qHD touch screen at a resolution of 540×960 yields a pixel density 256ppi. It features a 1.2GHz dual-core Intel Atom Z2420 CPU, signaling Intel’s entry into the mobile market. It also comes with 1GB of RAM and 4GB of internal memory (expandable via microSD to 32GB), all powered through Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). For your snapworthy moments, you can make use of an 8-megapixel back camera and a VGA front-facing camera. The phone also comes with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and a 2000mAh Li-lon battery that can provide up to nine hours of talk time.
