Acer Liquid Stream Passes the FCC

We have just begun to learn about the Acer Liquid Stream, a handset that we snapped a pic of last week at Google I/O and that the guys at AndroidFrance uncovered a bit of dirt on, and now the phone has made its way through the FCC, showing off a bit more of its details in the process.

What we can gather about the Liquid Stream:

  • GSM 850/1900 MHz
  • 5 megapixel camera
  • 720p recording
  • Snapdragon processor
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
  • 1400 mAh battery
  • HDMI out

Sure the name is a little redundant (I suppose there can be other types of streams), but this new Acer Android is shaping up to not be a half bad handset. It finds itself in the precarious situation of several other devices, having been designed with Android 2.1 in mind but coming to market after the release of Android 2.2. We can only hope they all get their updates in due time.

    Sounds like a good device.

    Drat! I was hoping AT&T would get it. But then you said it was NOT bad.

    I suppose it could be “backflipped” with Yahooness replacing the Googleness. Lockdown. Non removable apps. Etc.

    I’m waiting through June, possibly a wee bit more. But I’m quickly losing patience.

    @Danny – The GSM bands looks like it is going to AT&T

    @DannyB
    Same here, I’m all out of patience with them. They promised us 5 android handsets in H1 2010 and now have one more month to release 4 of those 5. If they don’t release something worthwhile (I hope that’s not asking too much?) by the end of June, I’m just going to switch to Verizon and get an Incredible. I’m done waiting for this dumbass company to get their act together, and I’m tired of them neglecting anyone on their network that doesn’t have an iPhone.

    It does work with AT&T. Not sure if AT&T will sell it but you could always get it unlocked.

    @swehes – thank you very much!
    .
    @dook – thanks, glad to know I’m not alone. If I leave AT&T, I’m not sure who I would go to. I have four, soon five lines on my plan. My line has been out of contract now since late last year. So I’m sure you can understand my frustration. I just have to get pushed over the edge to suffer having two phone bills to pay. OTOH, I could gradually switch the other phones away from AT&T. We have not had any trouble with AT&T’s network. We switched to Cingular, now AT&T, over nine years ago! It wasn’t until this lack of Android that I have become frustrated with AT&T. And then the “backflipping” of their phones. Thanks.

    Those bands mean it could be AT&T and/or any of the Canadian carriers. Time will tell.

    Honestly tho, the specs are great but it looks ugly with those media buttons. I have the current gen Liquid (works on AT&T’s 1900MHz 3G band, you can get it for $360 unlocked online) and I love it. But don’t think I will be “upgrading” to this phone.

    ditto! Waiting for the 5 android handsets. Ideally a snapdragon with a keyboard! Otherwise I am looking at HTC EVO on sprint.

    So it’s basically the already released Acer Liquid A1/e with 720p video recording instead of 480p, and HDMI output added. Everything else is exactly the same as the A1/e which can now run Eclair 2.1. Yawn. The liquid A1/e is a great phone btw, so it requires a lot more than these liquid stream specs to make an impact.
