Fido Gets its First Android: the Acer Liquid E

acer-liquid-e-smartphone

Canadian carrier Fido has just scored its first Android handset, the Liquid Acer E. While the phone may be showing its age a bit, it is available for a price that could never get old. For $30 dollars you can grab the handset on a three-year voice and data agreement. If it has been a while since you heard about the E, a quick refresher of the specs gets you a 3.5-inch touchscreen, Android 2.1, and a 5MP camera on top of all the standard connectivity such as WiFi and GPS. The E has been out on Rogers in Canada for a bit now, but this will provide another carrier option for those in the great white north.

    Rogers and Fido are the same carrier. Fido is just the “low cost” brand of Rogers.

    3 years? That is too long for a phone to last. Durability or life cycle will kill it’s use before that.

    LOL…Liquid E? unfortunate name choice…Liquid E is the street name for GHB.

    It does sound like a druggie’s phone but is a great phone nonetheless.

    The important question is if it is a pure android experience or if it is all messed up with a crappy skin by the manufacturer…

    I hear good things about it. I will just wait for Koodo to get an Android phone as they are the carrier that I know has the best prices and honestly can’t be beat in the Canadian cell phone bidding war.

    I enjoy the curve 8530(that Koodo has), but a lot of people are looking for an android running 2.1 in Canada as we get the sloppy seconds of the U.S.A.

    @timmyjoe42 Most of the Canadian Providers require that you have a 3 year voice and data agreement. It bad as most of the phones now last 2 years because of the way they are built and the internal components.
