Acer's "liquidmini" is Curvaceous, Shipping in April

Paul Lilly

There were plenty of smartphones on display at CES, including Acer's upcoming "liquidmini" device. This compact phone will ship in "jet silver," "royal blue," "piano black," "lime green," and "light pink," each one showing off chrome edges and wrapped in a soft touch casing.

Aesthetics aside, the liquidmini is an Android Froyo device with somewhat subdued hardware. It comes with a Qualcomm 7227 processor (600MHz), a 3.2-inch HVGA capacitive multitouch display, 512MB of RAM, a 5MP camera, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS support, microSD card slot (2GB card included), 3.5mm audio jack, and a 1300 mAh batter Acer says is good for up to 6.5 hours of talk time or 480 hours on standby.

The liquidmini is DLNA certified, so you can stream content from your home network to your phone, and from your phone to your DLNA HDTV.

Acer says the liquidmini will ship in the U.K. in April, with no word on when it will hit U.S. shores or how much it will cost.
