Acer Liquid A1 Video Demo, Getting Android 2.0 In 2010

The Acer Liquid A1 currently launches with Android 1.6 but if you’re craving Android 2.0 fear not – it will start shipping in 2010 with 2.0 in tact. That would LIKELY mean that carriers will also push OTA updates to bring your A1 up to date but that can’t be promised. Sometimes these tricky characters like to keep you a step behind so you have to buy another phone to catch yourself up. I wouldn’t COUNT on that time of sliminess but you can never count it out.

Check out this video demo done by TecholoShree… the same dude who did the Liquid A1 unboxing:

Does this make anyone really want the A1 or really not want the A1 any more?

If you’re in the UK and you’ve got your A1 or are considering it… check out our Acer A1 Forum!

    I like this phone. Sad it is coming to AT&T as I want to leave the carrier behind.

  • cymon

    I want this phone. But rooted, running stock android and using full capabilities of the processor

  • Jonathan

    It doesn’t change the look of the phone. So much bezel, so toylike.

  • N@te

    if it was rooted i would wanna have it

  • Sam

    The phone is kinda ugly and the custom software is stupid. I’m with cymon, root it and run stock android and it’ll be pretty nice.

  • Jay

    if this was running sense i would have bought it the second it was available

    if you want more info about the liquid, head over to the modaco forums.

    From what i’ve seen there:
    The liquid is rooted
    It can be underclocked (hopefully overclocking will come soon)
    Battery life is about 16 hours of constant 3g use (eg mail push).

    From what i’ve heard, people are extremely happy with this phone, some even saying it is worth $100 more than they payed. The price tag is a real plus.

    Mine should arrive monday! Looking forward to being able to put 2.0 on!

    Are you guys absolutely SURE that this phone will get the android 2.0 upgrade……..because I haven’t seen any official response anywhere about it….apart from this site:

    http://www.acerliquid.net/official-acer-response-to-android-2-0-support-and-other-questions

    which is apparently an official response, in which acer say that an android 2.0 upgrade ISNT planned at present.
    So……..

  • mo
